    Sata power connector

    Just a quick question. Just bought a sata drive, does it need a different power connector or will a 4-pin molex do? Ta.

    Maxtor one. From lowestonweb 160gb for 79.70.

    If it has a molex i will be very happy. I'll wait for ti to come, coz delivery on those tiny cables costs more than the thing itself.

    Cheers.
