DELL R710 DVD/TBU_PWR Connector

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I have a Dell R710. I am trying to tap into the DVD/TBU_PWR Port. This is a power port used for the DVD drive. I plan on using this for 2 low power SSD drives. I want to rewire this port but I cannot find the connector or the parts for it. I need a spare Male connector and the 4 pins that go in it. This is so I can wire my own up vs splicing wires. Please note this looks a lot like a CPU 4Pin connector, but it is much smaller. I can find the parts for the normal-sized 4-pin cpu connector but not this much smaller one. It's about 1/2 the size.

 

I could just buy one of these, but I don't like how it is setup and would like to make a custom one,https://www.disctech.com/Dell-PowerEdge-R710-Internal-SATA-Power-Adapter-Cable-Assembly-for-Optical-Drive-9in-23cm-GP700-

The Dell part is GP703  I only need the 4pin power connector on it and the pins that go in the connector. If anyone knows what this port number is or called, please let me know.

its just a standard eps 4pin connectory thingo. just measure the voltages on each pin from the ground pin (black) and then compare that to a pinout for sata connectors, connect those voltages as required and bingo

If you mean by that the same as you would for a CPU port or GPU card, you are wrong. This is much smaller.

 

Edit: I have added a photo so you can see the size difference.

https://www.molex.com/molex/home have a dig on there and see if you can find it. it would be hard for me to find it without physically having it. the other option is to lop the connector off and just solder the new connectors on

Looks like it is most likely this

Edit: Confirmed this is the right one. Mirco-fit 3.0

problem solved then! just work out the voltages and make a loom

You could also just use snap lock wire connectors and use regular sata power connectors from it this is no different than punching down terminals and easily acquired

Or if you can obtain these:
