SATA installation

Im installing a Sata hard drive for the first time. I notice there are 2 power connectors. The sata that sits next to the red lead and a conventional molex 4 pin power connection. Do i connect both? Many thanks

I asked this same question some time ago as I was confused as well.

The answer is to use one or the other. If you have SATA (7 pin) power connectors use them, if not you can either buy a converter lead click here or use the molex connector.

The molex is used when conncting to an old PV via a PCI card.
