Default DC12v to Molex

Im trying to figure out a solution for a light kit that i bought recently. It has a "barrel" type input power jack rated at DC12v and I want to be able to plug it into my computer via molex or sata power. My main problem is i cannot find a barrel jack to molex connector, just a cable or something small. what im trying to avoid is having a wall outlet power cord running out of my computer.

you can find what your looking for here
4pin molex computer power connector 4 pin 100pc Sale | eBay

you'll need a crimper and molex pin tools too

Note: If you can find the right size ink pen cartridge, you can use that to extract the male pins

and the other end of the cable (or adapter) needs to be a molex or sata power to be able to plug into my psu.

hmmmm...

do not know of anything you can (that's already made) use to convert that to a molex connector

You could cut off the end you need to supply 12 volts too and crimp female molex pins on the wires, slide the female pins into a molex connector and then you could connect that to the 12 volt side of a power supply molex (rail) inside your pc

you'll need some molex pins and connectors
