So my friend bought a new psu to replace his stock psu. Previously there was a 3 pin connector connected to a 2 pin wire from the case.

On the new psu there is no 3 pin wires as I understand it. He asked me if he could use one of the old 4 pin floppy drive connectors to the 2 pin wire so the case gets power.

He also asked if he can use the extra 2 pins on the pcie wire for this, I am pretty sure the answer to this one is definitely no.

Is there any way he can get power to the case with this psu or does he need an adapter or is this psu or case totaly incompatible?

this is the wire of the case:



I asked him just now and he uses a sentay xplus 725w

I think this is the cable adapter you are looking for.

just make sure you use a Ohm meter or have a wiring diagram so you know what voltage is comming from what pin and how much.  Dont want to give 20VDC to something that only maxs at 5VDC
