Hi there and welcome to Bleeping Computer.
The details of your question are a little confusing - generally there is no power connection between the mainboard and a SATA drive, power is supplied by cabling from the PSU (Power Supply Unit).
If there are no more SATA power connectors available in the wiring looms from the PSU, but there is a spare 4-pin Molex plug, you can use an adapter like this:
Note that this is not a product recommendation, just a reference that came up on Google (in Australia because that's where I am... )

It might also be worth posting the model number of the computer, if we can locate the manual we should be able to find out how the cabling goes.

The service manual detailing component fitting is here:
The HDD and optical drive installations are as per standard, the Serial ATA data cables to the mainboard and power from the PSU loom. So it seems you're looking for a normal SATA cable.
