DL185 8LFF -- add 2.5" sata drives in DVD-ROM bay

Recommended Posts

I have a HP DL185 G5 server, the 8LFF model. What I'd like to do is install 2 2.5" SATA drives where the optical drive would normally go. The problem is, there doesn't seem to be any additional power cables available to power the two drives. The PSU has a single, 10-pin connector not in use, but that's it. Any ideas how I could accomplish this goal?

I've seen these on Google: PSU Wire Harness 4-Drop SATA Adapter J1520 it looks like it might work. Anyone have any experience with these cables?

Thanks!

One of our techs says that cable should work. Power cables don't claim any affiliation. :)
