P4 connector only provides 12v so either its providing only 12v to the SATA connector's 12v or it's supplying 12v to the SATA connector's 5v. Means it would either just not work, or worse, fry the drive.
    I can take a picture when I get home a Dell Sx280 had it so I took it out, I dont have a picture but basically its P4 to Sata and like 4" long.

      Chances are it's just the same connector as a P4, but not an actual P4 connector. Dell is notorious for switching wires around, screwing with standards, and just generally making their hardware short out and smoke anything else you plug it into.

        Issue after Issue lol

        I picked up a cheap psu that had molex/sata power on it just so I could hook up my carpc inside to put in the ssd, windows, streetdeck and get it all re-configured, so its all done for when my new harness comes in. I hook it all up and its not working, I look, it seems the person who originally installed my car pc, he cut all of the wires from my cases buttons, so the power button is all clipped. Of course I didnt have a switch handy or any cables to bypass it. I couldn't do anything.
