I know this might sound weird at first, but hear me out. I have an old 400W PSU, which I plan on using in my headless server. It won't be anything crazy. One problem: It comes with only two SATA power cables, meaning I can only power two drives (one SSD and one HDD at the moment).
I want to make something like this:
Since I need to power a total of 5 drives. Luckily I have a modular Cooler Master PSU, which comes with some extra cables I don't need. One of those is this:
It has one modular connector at the end and four SATA power plugs, which is exactly what I need. I know the modular connector isn't molex, because it has 5 pins instead of molex' 4 pins. The modular connector looks like this:
Does anyone know if I can wire this up to a molex plug, so I can use the four SATA power plugs? I have a spare female molex laying around I can chop up. I'm not sure how the modular plug is wired and if all 5 are needed (there could be 2 GND for example).
If we assume the upper ones are correct, would this technically be doable just doing this:
I don't need 3.3v as far as I've read.
