Default Hello people - osu info? (noobie question maybe)?

I contacted you all about 2 months ago reguarding my psu kept blowing out, and i took your advice and spent a little more money on one and a circuit overload protector, since then my pc has run fine fine fine, a little hotter and sounds like concorde but its fine.

Just a general question, on my new psu theres a connector i do not recognise, its like an ide power lead socket on the back of the psu, its black and u cans ee it in the picture http://www.antec.com/images/400/true380.jpg anyone know whats its for?

Not incredibly important but id like to know so that i can know my pc inside out.

dunno, but just for the fun of it, i'm gonna guess it either has no purpose or is for SATA

I think it is for external SATA hard drives. Some motherboards are now coming out with external SATA connectors, so I think that that power connector has something to do with that.

If and only if, I was rich enough, I would like to have a go to see, while standing very clocse to the plug just in case.
