Sata to 8 pin adapter

Sata to 8 pin adapter DEFAULT

Is it possible to power a SATA drive from an 8-pin PCIe power connector?

I have a Dell Precision T3610 workstation that currently has two 3.5" SATA HDDs installed, and I'd like to add two more 2.5" disks in a hot-swap bay. I have two free SATA ports, but I'm struggling to find a way to provide power for the additional drives.

The only spare power connector on the PSU is an 8-pin PCIe block designed to provide power for a second graphics card. The machine has a 685W power supply - my intuition is that if the PSU is designed to provide enough power for a second graphics card then it should probably be able to handle a couple of extra 2.5" HDDs (which would should only draw about 3-4W apiece) but I admit that I have not done all of the math to confirm this.

I've come across various SATA-to-PCIe power adaptors (e.g. this), but so far I haven't found the converse (i.e. male PCIe to female SATA). I suspect that there is a good reason for this - my understanding is that PCIe power connectors provide ground and +12V pins, whereas SATA also requires a +5V pin (and possibly +3.3V as well for old drives). Can anyone confirm whether my suspicions are correct, and it is impossible to power a SATA drive from a PCIe connector?

Another possibility I'm considering is whether I can use a couple of y-adaptors to split the power supply to my two existing 3.5" HDDs in order to provide power for the two additional drives. Does this sound like a reasonable approach to try?

The SATA pin 8 power technology

1. What is SATA pin 8 power about?

The SATA pin 8 power technology is an invention based on the idea of a SATA DOM memory without a power providing cable.

However, between the "pure SATA 7 pin data connector" and the "connector with built-in power supply thanks to SATA pin 8 power", there was an intermediate step. More details in the following.

Options of power supply:
1  With an external power cable
2  Via SATA pin 7 technology
3  Via SATA pin 8 power technology

1.1 "Predecessor": The pin 7 technology

Until the year 2012, the SATA 7 pin connector was purely a data connector. In summer 2012, the SATA specification was extended by the pin 7 technology and released. From 2014 on, products corresponding to this extension were commercially available. With the pin 7 technology, power is routed to the seventh pin that was occupied by GND up until then, and was responsible for grounding. Figuratively speaking, the pin 7 technology means a kind of bridge between "pure data connector" and "power on pin 8".

With pin 7 technology, the SATA DOM memory was freed from the power cable. In general, the SATA DOM memory can be connected to the host either directly or by cable. The pin 7 power technology redefines the seventh pin for power supply. So it is a built-in power pin which carries electricity to the memory drive. SATA DOM with 7 pin technology are used for example in Intel server boards. Higher stability and failure safety of SATA DOM modules are said to be further advantages of the 7 pin power technology.

1.2 The succeeding technology: SATA pin 8 power

Main feature of the SATA pin 8 power technology (Pin 8 Vcc) is, power and data are led through one and the same connector, in this way there is a consistency with the SATA pin 7 technology. On the other hand there is a structural difference in design between a SATA 7 pin connector with 7 pin technology and SATA pin 8 power connector: the latter has two additional pins at the sides of the drive connector. These pins do not only serve as power supply but also create a rugged physical connection between the SSD and the mainboard. This stability improves the reliability of the whole system.

Because of the absence of an additional cable, the development of more compact modules is possible. Further advantages are easier installation and better airflow in the enclosure because no longer some cable interferes. Heat dissipation is an important criterion especially with embedded systems and servers that are constructed often with small enclosures and frequently produce a lot of heat.

Currently, this technology is mainly applied in the area of industry or servers, for example in rackmount server enclosures, or in Embedded-Low-Profile systems.

2. Which circumstances make SATA pin 8 power necessary?

Case 1 - Most common: The user has a PC with a mainboard without a SATA pin 8 power memory slot. This user is dependent on a usual SATA 7 pin connector. He will look for a solution with a cable or a slot bracket in order to connect a SATA DOM memory externally.

Case 2 - Also possible: The user has a PC with a mainboard supporting SATA pin 8 power. But the memory slot is hard to reach or blocked. In this case the user will look for a solution to extend the connection internally.

3. Practical examples based on Delock products

With these products, Delock offers different internal and external solutions in order to connect the memory module with the mainboard. Variants with cable as well as slot brackets play a part. The power supply is made possible in different ways, see below.

3.1 Examples of external solutions

Example 1 Item 84949 Slot bracket SATA 6 Gb/s 7 pin receptacle + Molex 2 pin power plug internal > SATA male pin 8 power external

STARTING POINT Inside the PC is a mainboard with a usual SATA connector. Now the task is to connect a SATA pin 8 DOM memory to the PC externally.

SOLUTION This slot bracket has a usual SATA 7 pin receptacle which can be connected to the mainboard internally. The Molex 2 pin power plug is for power supply. With its SATA pin 8 power plug, this slot bracket makes the external connection of a SATA DOM memory possible that supports pin 8 power. The latch function guarantees secure grip of the module.

Example 2 Item 84950 Slot bracket SATA 6 Gb/s receptacle internal > SATA male pin 8 power external

STARTING POINT Inside the PC is a mainboard with a SATA pin 8 power connector. There is a need to connect a SATA pin 8 DOM memory to the PC externally.

SOLUTION The connection from the inside to the outside can be made with this slot bracket: the SATA receptacle can be connected to the yellow SATA DOM connector at the mainboard internally. Now on the outside is a SATA pin 8 power plug with latch function for stabilized connection of a SATA pin 8 DOM memory. No additional power supply is needed.

3.2 Examples of internal solutions

Example 1 Item 84945 Cable SATA 6 Gb/s 7 pin receptacle + SATA 15 pin power plug > SATA plug pin 8 power

STARTING POINT Inside the PC is a mainboard with a usual SATA 7 pin connector. It is required to connect a SATA DOM memory with SATA pin 8 power internally. The challenge is, that the module cannot be connected to the mainboard in a direct way.

SOLUTION With this cable, the internal connection between the SATA connector of the mainboard and the SATA DOM memory can be extended. The cable end with the SATA 7 pin receptacle can be connected with the SATA port of the mainboard. At the cables other end there is a SATA 8 pin plug that can be plugged into the SATA DOM module. The latch function makes a safe connection. The SATA 15 pin power plug is for power supply and can be connected to the power supply unit.

Variant of example 1 Item 84947 Cable SATA 6 Gb/s 7 pin receptacle + Molex 2 pin power plug > SATA plug pin 8 power

Everything the same like example item 84945 (see above), except power supply by the Molex 2 pin power plug which can be led to a power supply unit with a free Molex power connector.

Example 2 Item 84946 Extension cable SATA 6 Gb/s 8 pin receptacle > SATA plug pin 8 power

STARTING POINT Inside the PC is a mainboard with a SATA pin 8 power connector. There is a need to connect a SATA pin 8 DOM memory internally. But in this case, it is not possible to plug the memory directly in the mainboard.

SOLUTION With this cable, an extension of the SATA connection up to 30 centimeters is made possible. The first cable end with its SATA receptacle can be connected to the yellow SATA DOM connector at the mainboard. The second cable end with its SATA plug with pin 8 power can be led to the SATA DOM memory and connected with it internally. Because of the latch function the connection is secured. This cable solution is ideally suited if, for example, the access to the SATA port is hard to reach.

When you troubleshoot issues with an internal power cable, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Power supply

  • Computer part

  • Power cable

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the power supply, computer part, and power cable in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different power supply, computer part, and power cable in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cable, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Make sure that the cable is firmly inserted into both ends.

  • The polarity (usually indicated by the color of the cables) matches.

  • No pins are bent or missing on the power supply cable or header, or the computer part.
