I am wondering if i can take your basic 120mm case fan with a 4 pin molex, take the molex it has and convert it to sata, and stick the sata male, into my sata female my power supply sends out. I have no molex on my power supply, and no system fan motherboard slots open.

I am wondering if i purchase the molex adapter and case fan that it will spin enough (enough power) or not break (too much power) or even if this option exists.

Any feedback appreciated, i'm not sure this is in the right section so someone help a noob out.

Thanks

You can buy SATA to Molex adapters. I found one for you here.

It turns one of your SATA power plugs into 2 molex plugs and still lets you use that sata power if you need to.

Thanks for the feedback, i know the connectors exist, but I've never heard of them powering a case fan. I'm wondering if its safe and viable. Thanks
