My sata power cable wont fit

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi. I recently bought a barracuda 1tb hdd because i needed more space. The problem is that the sata power cable wont fit in the hdd, because of 2 plastic pieces.

 

Please help :).

God no, why would you ever do that with something you know nothing about. Worst advice ever.

That for your protection. That Sata Power cable is the wrong type. It only has 12V and not the 5V for the logic board.

Maybe your using the wrong power cable?

I don't have the original cable, so i bought one on the internet... That might be the wrong cable? The other part fits in the psu.

Okay. So that's an adapter cable that converts a SATA power connector from your power supply to a 6pin PCIe connector for a graphics card that you want to ruin.

 

You need to use the SATA power cable that comes from the power supply to plug in to your HDD and throw the SATA to PCIe adapter cable in the trash where it belongs.

 

While you've got your system out it might be a good time to dust it as well.

Nooo no no no no. Don't do that. Do not plug the 6pin part in to the power supply. You might be able to jam it in there but it definitely does not plug in to the power supply!

to me it looks like you are trying to put two male connectors together, the cable side would need to be a female connection for you to be able to connect it  (photo below)

Corsair tx750m

Ah, should be somewhat easy to find replacement cables for it. Corsair Type 3 peripheral cables will work with the TX750M.

You'll need one like this for the HDDs https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Accessories-|-Parts/PC-Components/Power-Supplies/Ribbon-Style-SATA-Cable-with-4-Connectors%2C-Type-3-(700mm)/p/CP-8920116

 

Do you have the other cables for the graphics card? If not you can buy replacement cables for those as well. Both the Type 3 and Type 4 PCIe cables will work with the TX750M.

https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Accessories-|-Parts/PC-Components/Power-Supplies/Type-3-Sleeved-Black-PCIe-Pig-Tail-Cable/p/CP-8920114

Depending where you are you might be able to buy direct from the Corsair website or you might have to check retailers or amazon/ebay for cables, just make sure you get the Type 3/Type 4 cables for Corsair power supplies as you can't mix cables from different PSUs.
