Probably not. If you look at the connection, there are small differences between the different pins. The corners of them are angled in different patterns.
Take it one step at a time. Monitor the system temps. Hacking up the case can help, but if you are considering doing that, you should also start budgeting for a new case.
A good case can last a long time, and doesn't have to be expensive. Just get something you like.
I would not recommend altering the permanent connections to the power supply. #1. Its dangerous, and #2, it will void the warranty. If you need extra SATA connectors, just purchase the Molex to SATA adapters. They are cheap enough.[/quote]
The OEM PSU has this wire w/ two SATA terminations and a molex (that I'd like to reuse) not the new corsair.
actualley I was thinking about a new case more drive slots is appealing however my MOBO only has 6 SATA ports.
also my case has ten USB ports an I'm using six of them.
What do you think of my plan on using the Ebay bracket at the bottom of case for extra HDD?
and my other plan for the 5th HDD in the top compartment?
some of the wires are touching the PSU will a hot PSU melt these wires?
