Tap into a 4-pin molex connector (otherwise known as a HDD power connector).
Red = +5v
Yellow = +12v
Black = Ground
I have and and but im going trying to find the answer.
Please someone one help me with this. I have a powered usb hub. I understand that i need 5 volts to power it. Im pretty sure i can get it off my m2-atx power supply. My question is how in the hell do i do that. Do i just get a plug and cut the wires and hook it up to the power supply? if so where do i hook it up on the power supply?
so i just take like the wall adaptor and cut the plug off and plug it into a molex connector?
damn double post
here is my hub
couldn't tell if you'd done it already, but yeah, if you're not going to use the hub in the house anymore, yeah, just cut the plug and wire it in. Just make sure your polarity is right.Originally Posted by 2000Jeep
