Solution to Power supply needs

Alright here is my delima. ive got a 700 watt PSU and ive got a spare 4 pin molex and a free P4 power cable. Im wanting to add some lights and stuff to my computer and cant get a new PSU as of now to meet the needs. What im wondering is, is there any other solution to this. Power splitter or running it through a dimer that connects with a P4 or adding a second PSU for use on peripherals. Whats a cheap solution to this if any.

    Let me know if this helps. Most of the lighs that I have used will plug into molex plugs. If you want to mod plain fans to colored fans they may just be able to plug into mobo, but if not, they are usually either 4 pin or 3 pin...
  2. Well im running 2 12 inch led strips, two 6 inch strips, and Led that fit with my cooling system. And ive got 1 molex cable left on the end on a chain of 3 of them and the 1 P4 cable. I looked that those you sent and they led me to a solution to half the problem, ive got all the plugs on my mother board full aready do to the 12 fans in the case i have.

    Yes, if the last three links you posted were the things you still need to hook up.

    The one molex plug would turn into three and if I was looking at it right you only have two actual molex items to plug... the third can be used to power your power block for the smaller plugs. At the worst you may need another molex splitter to run off of the splitter...lol
