Now i already ordered a usb 3.0 PCI express card that i will plug into the motherboard.Then the usb 3.0 cable from the internal bay above will plug into one of those two slots.
The problem i am having it this.
The bay i linked above is powered by molex.My desktop doesn't have molex power supply.Only sata and 1 4 pin floppy connector coming off the power supply.All the sata connections are used up so that only leaves me with the 4 pin floppy connector to use.
I'll open it up again tonight and look at the coonections but I'm pretty sure there was no molex there at all.
Everything was sata powered
You got a link that shows the Inspiron 530 had molex?
All the PDF manuals I've found from dell do not show molex and I didnt see it in the case either but will check it again tonight
I don't but I am pretty sure I had some of those in the office. The manual probably won't show extra connections. A system of that age, and being a larger standard case (not the mini design) like that I would be extremely surprised if it didn't have one. I have used and worked on hundreds of Dells and never seen one without a spare molex. I am going to guess after you dig around you will find one but let's assume it doesnt. You can split a SATA in a Y config with something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6812198015 and then use one of these to get molex on the unused branch. http://www.amazon.com/C2G-Cables-...ex+adapter It should cost under $10 total.
I looked in the case again today and there is no molex cable anywhere period.
There are four sata connections and one 4 pin floppy connection.
The sata connections are paired up in twos and the floppy connection comes off of one of the sata connections.
Looks like i am just going to go with the 4 pin male floppy connector to molex since it will be the simplest. Only problem though is that it doesnt seem to be a very common cable so its hard to find at the normal places like amazon/ebay.
