Hi, i built myself a PC from scratch about a year ago and decided to stick with the PSU that came with the case until it died. It is an ATX 400W and comes with those clear connectors...

I now want to buy a new PSU but i need one with those same connectors because i don't want to get adapters for each connection.

So my question is:
1) In looking for a PSU, what is the specification written for those connections?
2) I'm happy to hear any suggestions about a brand/model

Cheers,
Brent

From your post, I have to guess that by the term "those clear connectors" you are speaking of 4 pin Molex connectors.

All the newer type power supplys come with both 4 pin Molex power connectors and SATA power connectors. Different power supply manufacturers use various spacing on where the 4 pin Molex and SATA power connectors are located on their wiring harnesses.

When you buy your new power supply you will need to look at the harness leads to determine for a neat arrangement of your cables whether you may need to use a Molex to SATA adapter, or a SATA to Molex adapter.

Thankyou for the quick reply.

As you can tell, i have no experience with PSU's and yes, that is what i meant by "those clear connectors". Hahaha

I've decided to go ahead and buy a PC Power & Cooling "Silencer 750 Quad" as it will keep me happy for when i upgrade in the years to come.

Thanks for all your help
Brent
