Molex to HDD adapter? Never heard of it, is it expensive to get one or it just cheap? I want to get one because i need to use more hard disk in my case.

I see. I'll try to contact my friend see if he can get me one or not. It might be very useful since i need it. Can you post a link of the picture showing me how does it looks like? Thanks.
About the casing, I understand much already. Thanks.

Here you go,

The molex (sometimes called LP4) goes in the white end then it splits the power into 2 (Black)HDD connectors(also for DVD Players)

Note that for the HDD to work, you also need a SATA Cable. Il assume you have an available connection as most motherboards supply 4+.

Reply back if you need a picture of better explaining

In the for what it's worth department, I've built a lot of computers in a lot of cases, but my favorite was my Cooler Master HAF X. It is a large case with ample space to run wiring behind the motherboard, airflow is absolutely great and you will never have to ask if any component will fit in your case. It has 2 hot swap drive bays in the front and space for I believe 6 more inside. It also has a 200mm fan on the side to cool graphics cards, and it does make a difference.. Just my 2 cents.

I don't think I need a picture, I know what exactly the SATA cable looks like, but I'm sure I connected all SATA cable to the motherboard already, which means even I have the molex you mention, I won't be able to put more hard disk inside anymore??

I was gonna get the HAF edition, but my father told me to use the elite 431 plus first because his paying so in the future I will change to another bigger one if need to. I'll see if is necessary.

What about..

First a USB 3.0 Header to USB 3.0 Connection

Followed by a USB 3.0 to Sata Adapter

It wont look very good but it will get the job done
