Looking for an adapter

By Joe Panther

  1. Okay, here's the thing, I bought a new video card that requires two 4pin connectors to run it's fan. My power supply has five SATA power connectors and only one 4pin connector. So, two 4pins and only one free power connector.

    I ordered two adapters which convert SATA into 4pin, which by reading that it's hard to tell which end is the "adapted" end. Anyway, they weren't the right ones.

    I need the adapter to have a female 4pin side (without pins) and a male SATA side (with pins).

    I just need help finding the right cord, could someone point me to the right one?

    Just to show you, this is what I bought. This is the opposite of what I need. http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16812104652
