i double checked all the wire connections and they are tight. the hd has 3 wires to it(2 of em coming from the psu), why would it have a 4pin and a custom connector for the hd
Before you go any further, unplug one of the power connectors coming from the psu. You are only supposed to use ONE OR THE OTHER. Hopefully your drive is not fried yet.
