Serial ATA Power Cable
Connect your new SATA drive to the conventional four pin plug. SATA uses a different power connector than current drives, so this is a must if you dont have one.
Description:So you want to start using your brand new 150 MBytes/sec Serial ATA drive. You've installed the drive and connected the data cable but one problem: your drive uses a 15-pin SATA power connector and your power supply only has LP4 plugs. End your frustration with the RB-414, a 15-pin SATA to 4-pin LP4 Adaptor that lets you connect your SATA drive to your existing power supply.

I was a bit disappointed to get my shiny new SATA drive and find I needed a SATA power cable for it. It would have been great for something like a message when purchasing the drive to ask if I have the required cables? A nice way of avoiding that disappointment.
Always check you have the correct cables before buying
can this be used to power a gfx card by GJS
I want to get an HD3850 card, but my system only has sata power leads. Can I use this to connect to the graphics card via the 4-pin molex to 6-pin PCI-e connector?
No, you will need to rearrange your cables, or purchase a different PSU.

Will this cable connect with your 80G Seagate Barracuda 7?

I bought a Maxtor 200GB Sata today and they do need the power connector. I also have the maxtor 160Gb and that had connections for both. Back tomorrow to collect the cable...
Yes, sorry about that - it seems that Maxtor in their infinite wisdom have decided to leave off the Molex connector on the DiamondMax +10 drives!
