    Power for SATA drive? (Procase Noah, Intel D945GCLF)

    Hi there,

    I have trouble powering a SATA drive. The case is Procase Noah, which has an AC/DC-adaptor. The motherboard is an Intel D945GCLF, and the drive is connected with a SATA-cable. On the chip receiving the input DC there is one connector remaining, a small 4-pin connector, which is, after some searching on the interwebs, the power supply for my drive. The case comes with a dual female small 4-pin connector to female molex cable (or the other way around, doesn't seem to matter, does it?).
    Simply put, my question is: how should I power my drive?

    Cheers,

    spr

    The case should come with the cable on the right of this photo:

    If you don't have that cable, then look for a cable with one standard IDE molex power connector to x2 (or x1 if you don't need a floppy drive) floppy connectors.

    Then use a molex to SATA converter which you can get anywhere - eBay/kustomPC/scan/linix/etc:
