okay, so I have a Dell XPS 8500 and I wanted to make it look a little more pretty by adding some lights and LED fans.

Here are some Cold Cathode lights that I'd like to install in my case.

While I was looking in my case I noticed that there are no 4-Pin Molex connectors. Only one spare SATA and 2 PCI-e 6-pin connectors. Nor are there any 3 or 4 Pin connectors on my mobo for additional fans.

I found a 6-pin to multiple 3-pin adapter here:

So I suppose I'm okay with the Fan problem but what of the SATA/4Pin? I've emailed the company asking about their product but have not yet received a reply.

I'm assuming I need some sort of SATA to 4-Pin adapter? Or a 6-Pin to 4-Pin adapter possibly? Do I have any other options?

Thanks a bunch.

Thought I had others but when I rechecked... nope
It seems Xoxide doesn't have them, hope it helps


I was actually looking at that but I didn't want to order anything until I was certain.

Thank you!
