Hello, my father has Dell Inspiron 530s and wants to a USB 3 card which has a 5 pin Molex connector on it used by the the old ide style drives , How do I connect it to the power supply , without replacing the power supply? (The power supply doesn't have a cable with this type plug.)

Are you sure it's a 5 pin Molex connector?

The standard is Molex/IDE 4-pin Power Connector.

Dell moved away from power supplies with obsolete 4-pin Molex power connectors long ago.

Hi :) 

You realise it will NEVER run at USB 3 speeds ?

All the best Brett :)
