Yes, those are what you need. I believe there is already a spare molex connector available for the ODD. If you plan to put your SSD in place under the ODD bay and you plan to include an ODD or a 5th HDD then you need to molex Y adapter (converts 1 connection into 2). Otherwise you just need the molex to SATA power cable adapter for your SSD.

Like what Chris said -- there's already a spare Molex plug in the ODD bay so for just one drive you'd need the Molex to SATA Power 15pin connector like your 2nd link http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/dynamode-molex-to-sata-power-cable-0-10m-07843320-pdt.html?intcmpid=display~RR~Computing+Accessories~07843320 which looks the same as what I used from newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812200061

 

If you want to put a 2nd drive in the ODD bay you should look for a Y type Molex to 2 SATA Power 15pin connectors like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812816015

 

Unless you get an Icy Dock 2-bay like described here then u only need the single Molex to SATA Power 15pin connector.

The Molex-to-SATA drive adapter is the better option: the fewer interconnections the better.
