is there a male 3.5" internal power cable with additional female 3.5"
so far I've seen are the variations on the y-power splitters.
5.25" male - two 5.25" female
5.25" male - one 3.5" female, one 5.25" female
5.25" male - two 3.5" female
5.25" male - one 5.25" female
5.25" male - one 3.5" female
reason I'm interested in the 3.5" male-female power cable is that I
recently got a SIIG usb port bay hub. Its design unfortanelty places
the 3.5" power connector half way in the usb bay. this makes it
difficult to insert one 3.5" power cable from the power supply to the
usb bay. Part of the problem is due to the AT case design. If I hook
the 3.5" cable to the usb bay, I can't push it back up front.
I could, however, get a 5.25 male - 3.5" female cable and a 5.25" male -
two 5.25" female cable. I'd like to avoid having to go thru this
route. I want to keep cable clutter to the minimum possible.
Re: 3.5 internal power cable extender
Why don't you just cut the leads to the connector you wish to use
(with power off, of course!) and splice in an additional length?
Soldering the connections does the best job, but twisting the
stripped wires together is sufficient. Do a good job of taping
the splices in either case.
