I have a Lenovo Ideacentre 710 desktop (Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD) that came from Best Buy. Does anyone know if the psu has an available LP4 connector (4 pin, Molex Large Drive Power)? I took off the cover to look inside, but I didn't see an available connector. It doesn't mean it's not there, maybe it's hidden? I know the psu is proprietary, so that doesn't help. I wouldn't have picked the computer solely based on that, but I had no say in the matter.
I need/want to install a PCI Express to PCI adapter card so I can install a PCI card where there's only a PCIe slot. A customer review indicated the adapter isn't bus powered and requires the use of the LP4/molex connector. I'm actually not sure if I need the power connector or not. This stuff is so confusing.
I would've asked on Lenovo's forums, but I can't access them. They're so overbloated that I can't get the website to load with a super slow internet connection.
