Hello -

Did not realize that the Scorpion deluxe 480GB pcie ssd requires a sata power connection when I ordered it...
The problem is that I am trying to install this on a server (Dell Poweredge R715) and the server does not have any extra power connections....there is a slimline sata connector for the optical drive and was looking for an adapter that I could possibly use to get power to this card as an option...not sure if this would even work because the connector that feeds the power to the optical drive has two wires a black and red...wikipedia says that the red wire is usually 5v on the slimline connector and for a standard sata power connector there are a orange(3.3v), red(5v), and a yellow(12v)...

Not sure what the power requirements are on this card or if my idea of using some sort of adapter would even work
Any ideas or suggestions?
Here is a link to Dells technical guide for this server...

Hi,

Yeah it needs the SATA power cable to power the SSDs.

You need a 12V line for those.
In the manual on page 17 it has a cable diagram, it says there is a SATA power/data, is there a SATA power connector there?

Yeah that connector does not have a 12V line by the looks of it. (just 5V and ground)

It would be easy if they just put a molex on the system somewhere...

Has to be a 12V line there that there is a splitter for. Do the fans have any connectors on them, got to be a 12V tap there somewhere.

Not my ideal setup but I just ordered this cable that Im thinking about using for just the power supply

It gets connected to an open sas hd drive bay on the server...not sure if this would cause any damage either
since I am only going to use it only for the power supply and not a hard drive

Now since this cable is only 12" I need to find a long extension cable so I can route the power to the pcie ssd card...

which ideally would be an sata male to female power extension...
