We are talking about the same thing right?
True, but whenever someone talks about a molex connector, the following comes to my mind:


That connector doesn't have 3.3v. But I know Molex is just the company who makes these connectors, it's just the association I have.

Back on topic, to take 5v down to 3v you can use a voltage regulator like a LD1117.

He didn't say it was on the Molex connector (which shouldn't be called a Molex connector since Molex make pretty much every connector in a PC) - he said it was on the SATA connector. Which is correct...

Maybe you can show me where he said it was on the SATA connector? proof.gif

Also, if you read carefully what I said, I DID mention Molex is the company who makes [all these types] of connectors including sata power, although I take it as my mistake for not being clear. Proof, I did say it comes to "my" mind, not everyone else's.

It was the second post, where the 3.3v was first mentioned. It really wasn't hard to find.

I know - I was agreeing with you...

With that I thought you were saying that the op said it wanted to draw 3v off a sata power cable, which is not the case.

I never said the guy talking about sata power was missing the point? confused.gif I merely indicated that I thought the op, who never mentioned sata power, is referring to an old school molex power connector.

Who knows, I took out a psu the other day from a pc a few years old to use it for projects, and it didn't have sata power.

My bad.

Thread Starter 
Doesnt really matter if Its molex or sata or whatever. I was just wondering if it was possible. My PSU is modular and I can make a cable if necessary. I just wondered if the voltage would be too high for something that runs off of batteries. But thanks for all your input.. I think Ill just drill a hole in my case to run a security lock instead. Thanks again for all the input.

See if the device you want to use has an option to run it off of a USB port. If it does, just connect it that way.
