External Hard Drive Power Adapters
I think this is the right place to ask this:
I have an external drive that I want to add to my computer and am probably going to end up connecting the power directly to the PSU via a molex connector. I know not all external drives have the same rated "power bricks" or power adapters, but if I connect one to the PSU in this way, wouldn't it just grab as much power as it needs no matter what the power adapter gives it? I just don't want the power from it to do anything to the HD like fry it or anything. A fuse would probably protect it right?
