I have a corsair tx 750 PSU, and I can't seem to find the correct plug that would fit into the cable for my raptor 10K 300 gb drive.


Update My raptor was OEM, and didn't come with any cables.

I have this cable that on one end has 2 serial ATA connectors, and the other end just says 1234 (it has 4 female rounded holes in it).

One end of that cable should be attached to your PSU. On the other end you use the either the flat style plug shown below, or the 4 rounded holes plug to plug into your hard drive. – hyperslug Aug 10 '09 at 3:07

Does it look like this would fit it?

If so, you can buy an adapter here.

my cable is all black, but one end has 2 of those on it (like your pic), and the other has 4 large holes (female) that need a male connector (like the pic at new egg). – user3183 Aug 10 '09 at 2:57
and yes that would fit just fine, just don't have it! – user3183 Aug 10 '09 at 3:00
So follow the link at the bottom and buy one. – tsilb Aug 10 '09 at 3:34
nah, i'll just go to my local store in the morning, I can't wait. – user3183 Aug 10 '09 at 3:40
@homestead, every picture I've seen of the 750TX has one of those connectors on a wire coming out of the PSU. If yours doesn't, you have a real anomaly on your hands. – hyperslug Aug 10 '09 at 3:58

One cable should be a power connector that goes from Raptor to PSU that has a wire sequence of yellow, black, black, red. I just found out that the Raptor has both a SATA and an old molex type connector, so choose one but not both. Again only 1 power wire should go from drive to PSU.

Another cable is a thin flat SATA cable that plugs into the motherboard.
