    The power supply looks to be 12V @ 5A so any ATX power supply should handle it with ease.

    Do you have a 4 pin molex to PCI-E adapter cable that often comes with graphics cards. You could remove the PCI-E plug and fit a DC power plug the same as the one on the power supply.

    Molex is a manufacturer of connectors and has many configurations possible. What application has the pins as you describe? An ATX power supply connector?

    If you're using an ATX power supply, I often scavenge a matching connector from the hardware I pulled the PSU from and remove any unused/unwanted pins.
