    I'm looking for a connector similar to the receptical found on the back of an IDE rive (4 pin) that can connect to a standard ATX power supply. Can someone show me one or at least tell me what these are called.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I actually just found what I was looking for. The connector is called a MATE-N-LOK made by Tyko International.
