SATA 15Pin Male to IDE Molex 4Pin Female HDD Extension Power Adapter Cable

SATA 15Pin Male to IDE Molex 4Pin Female HDD Extension Power Adapter Cable

Applications:

  • Connector: One end of the SATA power cable is a typical 4-pin IDE/ATAPI female power connector (which gets connected to an unused power cable from the power supply) and the other end (15-pin male connector) is connected to the SATA hard drive.
  • Function: Converts new style power supply output of 15-pins SATA to 4-Pin molex for connection to legacy optical drives.
  • Application: Suitable for 3.5 Inches SATA Hard Disk and 3.5 Inches SATA CD-ROM; DVD-ROM; DVD-R/W; CD-R/W and so on.

4 Pin IDE Molex Female to SATA Power cable for HDD SSD CD-ROM

Overview

4 Pin Molex Female to SATA Power cable for HDD SSD CD-ROM

The  4 Pin molex Female to SATA Power cable  4pin power transfer to 15pin serial port power supply, if your serial port power supply is tight, you can convert the IDE power port in your chassis, that is, the 4pin power port into a 15-pin serial port power supply, which is cost-effective.4pin power transfer to 15pin serial port power supply, if your serial port power supply is tight, you can convert the IDE power port in your chassis, that is, the 4pin power port into a 15-pin serial port power supply, which is cost-effective.Use a 4-pin D head adapter cable to convert the SATA power supply to an ordinary optical drive.

 

Customer questions & answers

QUESTION: I want this cable for a thermal take riing trio controller that can connect up to 5 fans. To much power?

ANSWER: yes,it should work.

 

QUESTION: Can these cable be used with any power supply?

ANSWER: Yes, any power supply that you need to convert 15-pin SATA connectors to the old Molex connector.

 

QUESTION: i want to use an adapter that is molex from the led light on my hard drive case, and power it via a sata plug in from my power supply ?

ANSWER: I bought these kinds of adapters to be able to hook up the old style hard disk drive ATA to the newer SATA connections. I also bought the converter that connects into the ATA fitting, which needed one of these adapters to power it also. If that is your need also, you might look further to buy an adapter that has two of the white power supply ends with one black SATA connecter.

 

QUESTION: i want to use an adapter that is molex from the led light on my hard drive case, and power it via a sata plug in from my power supply ?

ANSWER: Not sure, I used this cable to power SATA drives on an old computer that only had Molex plugs. The cable was quality but not sure about your specific use for it. Based on your use description, there are likely better options out there. 

 

FeedBack

“If all of your computer’s SATA power cables are already in use, and you need to add another SATA device (Hard Drive or CD / CDR) use this adapter to convert an available IDE power cable to be able to connect to your SATA device.

I got a new Hybrid Hard Drive, and wanted to keep my existing Hard Drive. All my SATA power cables (only 2 with my power supply) are already in use, so I got this adapter to connect the new Hard Drive to the power supply using one of the several IDE power cables that are not in use (I have no IDE devices on this computer). I also got a SATA data cable (there are only 2 with this computer as well) to connect the new Hard Drive to the SATA data port (there are four on this computer – so why only 2 cables ??). Everything is working perfectly, and I am completely happy with the results of my hardware investments.”

 

“You never know what you’re getting when you buy inexpensive cables with a molex power connector on one end.
Some of the products are robust and feature good quality connectors and wires, and some are a joke and you’re lucky if you get 1-2 insertions out of them before the connector starts to come apart.
This is a good quality product. It’s not cheap, low-gauge wire with stiff, laughable insulation like many of the products. The wire is of reasonable gauge and is nicely spry and flexible. The connector holds together, the male pins aren’t all over the place at weird angles or flopping about to interfere with insertion, and the connection it makes is good.
Happy with this purchase and would buy again if needed.

 

“So, I’ll admit.. I’m not using this for it’s intended purpose. I’m using this with a USB adapter that just so happens to output power on a 3.5″ floppy Molex connector. By plugging that connector from this adapter into the USB adapter, I can now output both SATA and regular Molex power on a single cable without any additional adapters. It works great! The quality is typical of StarTech products – simple, but robust.

 

“I had absolutely no problems with this product. There is only so much one can write about a power cable: It was the correct length, it seems to be made of legit materials, not flimsy. This was handy for connecting an older component to newer SATA-only connections. It came in a small plastic zip-seal bag, adequately protected by a padded envelope. It was delivered at the beginning of the estimated delivery timeframe. There are many different models so make sure you select the correct plugs and cord length before ordering.”

 

“This adaptor cable worked fine. It converts from a SATA power socket to an older, IDE style power plug in a MOLEX brand shell.
I do a couple of things when connecting this up. 1. Put a cable tie around the mated SATA plug and socket so they cannot pull apart, accidentally. 2. Wrap the mated SATA pair in clingfilm, to prevent dust building up over time. 3. Lightly secure the cable to something in the case, or to an existing cable harness, so the whole cable assembly does not move about in the case.
That’s it. The rest is very straighforward.”

 

“It’s bizarre how many peripheral manufacturers use a mixture of sata power and Molex meaning that you have to run both types of cables to similar locations. These little adaptors remove the need for the Molex cable in lower wattage systems making the inside of a PC quite a bit tidier.”
