PSU has no molex?

So I'm going to make a build but I want to use NZXT hue 2, which is unfortunately powered by a molex connector. Try as I might I can't find a power supply that has a molex connector. Has that stopped being a standard or am I just blink to where these are?

Most of them should still have 1 or 2 molex per power supply.

Any standard ATX PSU should have Molex on it if I'm not mistaken?  If you can't find it, and if the card doesn't take too much power, you could adapt a SATA power to Molex.

Yeah, most manufacturers are not really a huge fan of Molex connectors anymore. It's just not really standard nowadays.

They still are included on many power supplies though, sometimes they are called Molex and sometimes they are called '4-pin Peripheral power connector'.

That makes much more sense. I was thinking the peripheral power was something entirely different, but that straightens everything out. Thanks!

What? I think you'd have a much harder time actually finding one that hasn't got one. I think every single model Corsair offers has one.

Remember that the connector isn't actually called molex. Molex is just a brand that makes connectors

Yup, that was the reason why I was having trouble. Thanks for the help though!

Funnier, that molex wasn't even the brand that came up with the connector that is refered to as the "Molex Connector".  (Though they did come up with that style of connectors).

 

The AMP MATE-N-LOK series connector was released in the early 1960's, the 1st floppy drive to use that connector was released in 1976, and molex came up with a compatible connector in the early 80's.
