Default I Need more power cables!

I only seem to have about 4 coming of my PSU (4 pin molex???) . Can you get some kind of converter to change it in to more than this?

you can get splitters. Try your local Maplin store or there website, but be wary - they may only be 4 for a reason. Make sure that your PSU put's out enough wattage to support all your hardware.

Here's some links:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...101-203&depa=0

http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...978&pfp=BROWSE

And listen to connchri... Make sure your power supply can handle it. If you are using that 600 watter that you have in your signature, you should be fine. I have a power splitter on my 450 watt and it's doing fine... (6600 GT, 4 80mm case fans, 1 PCI exhaust blower fan, 2 CD drives, 2 HDD's... I think that's it )

Those have been around for a while, but if you need more cables you should get a bigger power supply which have more cables. If you had too many splitters you may lack power.
