Need Molex power for USB 3 Card (G8)

Recommended Posts

kamaran

Can anyone help?

 

I can't see anywhere I can power this USB 3 card from?  I do see one molex adapter directly underneath the ODD but it seems impossible to get at?

 

Anyone have any suggestions please?

The molex under the ODD is the best place to tap in.

If I remember correctly, I pulled it through the large hole in the ODD bay, took it apart and added a 'y' cable.

Then I tucked it all back under the ODD and ran the new cable out the side hole.

Just came back to this having done the same myself - thanks for the encouragement :)
