I have an HP motherboard that has some SATA connectors that I'm not familiar with. What kind of connector is it?

    \$\begingroup\$ That is definitely not a SATA connector. Probably a power connector of some sort. What exactly do you want to know? The pinout, the model of the connector or what? \$\endgroup\$

That looks to me like a fan connector.

  • \$\begingroup\$ It's a different connector than what's used for case and CPU fans. But I've seen that kind of connector on graphics cards and laptops. The color scheme looks typical for a PWM fan. \$\endgroup\$

HP among others have used custom non standard cables for sata data and sata power depending on the use case.

That JST connector is likely being used for SATA power from a motherboard connector. It looks like a JST PH 4 pin 2.0mm pin to pin width. The other side is probably a molded micro sata 17 pin connector with both data and power (I'm assuming)

  • \$\begingroup\$ I should have been more specific in my post. This is for SATA power and the other end is a 17 pin connector. I'm just trying to find a cable. From your response I'm looking for a JST PH 5 pin to 17 pin sata power cable. Found one amazon.com/2-0mm-Small-15Pin-Supply-Industrial/dp/B08FNW6HNJ. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @blfinche 4 pin to full size sata power? The picture you include is 4 pin not 5, and there is a difference between sata power slimline sata power and micro sata power connector sizes \$\endgroup\$

thats no kind of sata. The first SATA version supports 1.5 Gigabits/s that would not work with the cable shown in your Photograph.

That is a JST PH female wire-to-wire connector housing, 2 mm pitch (as identified by my connector identification utility).

JST PH connector
