    Tap a HDD molex connector for 5v & 12v.
    You're probably going to have to make your own connector.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

        Yellow = 12v
        Red = 5v
        Black = ground

        I don't think which ground you use matters, but the grounds for each line are closest to that voltage.
