Finding a PCIE to SATA power cable

Postby Mark_Cangila » Sat Jul 14, 2018 12:22 am UTC

My computer is about 3 years old now. I recently bought a new hard drive, but realized that the only free power port on my SATA power cable was broken from when my CD-ROM broke. This cable goes from connecting to a PCIE port on my PSU to connecting to a standard SATA power port. My PSU is a PSH600V-D from Spire. Does anyone know where I could find another one of these cables? My PSU doesn't have a Molex port.

So you have a modular PSU, with detachable cables? If so, the ports on the back aren't necessarily the same pinout as PCIe power connectors.

Yes. And if wishes were horses, wishing wells would fill up very quickly with drowned horses.

Oh. I think it's modular. Not quite sure. It comes out of the case, which I assume is what you mean. I'm actually not sure about the pinout, but I can't find anything about the PSU online.

Where could I find what pinout it is?

I found the cable I need: 5-pin S-ATA Connector to S-ATA power. It looks like a 6 pin PCIE but one of the pins isn't there on purpose. Where could I find that?
