I found the Corsair TX 750 having 2 floopy connectors. I understand some may need 1 floopy connector for WinXP RAID driver.

But what's the use for the other one?

^5 +1 what saaiello said.

I have a brand new Seasonic power supply that came with a couple of floppy power connectors. My brand new motherboard came with a couple of flat ribbon floppy disk cables. I have haven't used a floppy drive or other IDE device for years.
I guess there is someone somewhere that might still use the cable.

Floppy disk drives, cd-rom drives, firewire, reset switches on pc cases, and case speakers have all been replaced by new and improved components. It is just a matter of time before legacy components disappear completely.

They give you a general selection of connectors to suit all needs etc
