Cable pin

Guys i might seem dumb but i want to be sure i wont burn my hdd and ssd. I have a x4 pin and a x5 pin molex cable that must enter in PSU to give power to the drives. My question is : whats the difference between the 2? they have 6 holes in them and to be more specific one cable at his end have 5 pins inside and the other that have 6 holes again in it have just 4 pins inside . Hope i explained well

i used to have the connected the 4 pin cable into the PSU but now i switched to the 5 pin cable one and i supply my ssd and hdd with it. I turned the pc and it seems all runs good. My main concern is not to burn my hdds and ssds so would be there an issue in future if i plugged the wrong cables to the psu or if it runs normal now it means i used the right cables ?

Sory to tell but the PSU you have there is at least 10 years old and it was not very good when it was new and its even worse today
Retire it and buy something better its terrible its not even a 700 watt unit the two 12v rails are only good for 552 watts total

this psu unit i doubt its 10 years old because i had no computer back then. The most it has can be 7 year but this is not my concern i mean my main concern is my ssd and my hdd safety. I powered the PC and it works . My concern is if that i can burn or not my ssd or hdd if i put the wrong cables that was all what i needed to know .

The PSU came out 10 years ago and the OCZ ModXStream Pro uses the same platform and i have a thread with details on why its terrible

What you have is not very good and given its proven track record i would not trust it to power a toaster
If you still want to use it you should know that you will be risking your SSD and HDD which is what you where asking

I am not contradicting you. I know its not the best PSU outthere but it was new when i bought it and its around 7 years old . It worked very good all these years and it was very used not a single issue not once. My problem was if i got the cables right.. that was all i wanted to know



LE: wanted to know whats the difference between the x4 pin and the 5pin one that enters the psu also

Not to mention those ARE NOT molex connectors that are in the Pic the OP provided, the pic is of a 6 pin AUX connector that uses ATX pins inside the connector.


From what I'm looking at it AND stabling a guess that the PSU is A-Typical in its pin-out, it looks like the first one provides 12v, 5v, and 3.3v with 2 ground wires. The second one provides 12v, 3.3v, and 2 grounds.


The top pic is for powering SATA HDD/SSD(s), the 4 pin for running Perif like fans ECT.

Thank you for information my friend. i really am noobie when it comes to such things and my english is terrible. I have connected the ssd and the hdd with the first pick "key" and installed windows to that machine. It runs perfectly i just wonder if the cable is exactly from that psu or not. If it wasnt from the psu that i have installed i would INSTANTLY burn my hdds/sdds right , the moment i fire up the computer is this correct ?
