    Nope, I've yet to be able to find it anywhere else, and minibox doesn't sell it on their website, you have to specifically ask for it via email and they'll sell it to you.

    Not sure why nobody commented on this. Most all laptop hdds and SSDs I've ran into use 5v only. P4 is only 12v and ground. And normal 3.5" sata drives require both 12v and 5v.

    Tidder, thanks for the reply I appreciate. I found a P4 to Sata power adapter, are you saying not to use it for my SSD? If not back to plan xxx lol

    Do you have a link you can provide to the cable you found? I don't see how that could work. Laptop SATA hdds require 5v, desktop SATA hdds require 12v and 5v. 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.
