    Default HDD Installation Help on Original Level 10

    A few years back I had iBuyPower build me a system. I've never built my own. I am an artist and musician and live at my computer. I have recently been upgrading my storage in that system. I was able to easily replace the SSD I had with a new one for my OS and applications. However, I am attempting to install a second HDD, a 2.0TB Western Digital WD2002FAEX, and I've hit a wall. I am not as tech savvy as I'd like to be. I ordered these SATA power cables from Thermaltake to connect all my HDD trays and I can see how I would be able to connect to the MB from them. However, the 4 pin molex connector off of these has cabling that only goes 6 inches. I can't reach my PSU with that and the cable connections from out of the PSU are buried in the build. I can't make sense of what's available. The PSU doesn't have a female connection available of that type easily accessible. I am hoping for some guidance. I've ordered fans as well and found this:

    Answer - Welcome to Thermaltake

    I'm still not clear how to proceed. Specifically, I don't know how to connect to the PSU from the SATA cables or how to get the fans all hooked in.
