You could be cheap like me, and cut the wires off an old PSU and then splice them onto your wires.

Worked for me.. I have 7 molex connectors now.

$5 shipping on the first one, but the shipping should get a lot cheaper after that. I am in shipping at work, and that's the way it works... unless they send each one seperately.

There is no harm in doing this as long as you carefully examine the chain that the addtional molex is being connected. There is no addtional risk to the psu or system if the add-on is done professionally. The connector is doing the same thing.

Well usually you have a fan, it has a power connector then a separate one to connect another one, then the other thing has another one, etc

And it would be 1/3 man, 1/3 bear, and 1/3 pig :shocked:
