Need help connecting ODD

Either of the cables you posted will work.
Its just different options for power, some older PSU's don't have an option for a SATA power connector.

You will definitely need power though, the data connector is for data only.

Hey guys and gals,

 

I need help connecting an ODD. It's a slim slot-in ODD I took out of an old Laptop. Now after searching around quite a bit, I still don't really know how to connect it.

I do know that I need a Slim SATA (or Slimline SATA) cable to connect it datawise, but do I also need power?

Can I connect this https://www.amazon.de/DeLOCK-SATA-Slimline-ALL-cable/dp/B001MEY99G to a SATA port on the Mobo and the Molex to the PSU for it to work?

Or do I take this https://www.amazon.de/DeLock-Kabel-SATA-13pin-Buchse/dp/B002OVNZ1E and connect the SATA power thingy to the PSU?

 

Thanks in advance!

#1 Connectors: Should be, as already said, Slimline SATA (or 7+6 Pin SATA)photo_2019-05-19_21-30-50.jpg.be088fb5fd19e7d98358d71636c936b4.jpg

#2 Drive: Standard kinda slim slot in drive. I already screwed it into the mount for the new case (Cougar QBX)photo_2019-05-19_21-30-44.jpg.90ca342c6b6eba87122587d6d53bb320.jpg
