Fractal Core 2500 Computer Case

Hello all , I recently bought a Fractal Core 2500 Computer Case and was wondering what sought of adapter I would need to get connected to the hard drives . if that's what you're supposed to do with it , here is a pic taken off the same model case on Youtube . It looks like a large sata cable and it has about 15 pins showing on one side .At the moment I run the hard drives off the power supply with connectors that came with it . Thank you .

Hi,
Yep that is a multiple power connector to either hdd or ssd on your second image
Can't make out the first image though
Oh the first image could be a male power for a extension if you notice the second image shows all female ends.

Depending on your power supple those cables should come with it.

Instead of looking at a pic from YouTube, why not look at the case you've just bought and see what that cable is connected to. The big psu sized space (and hole) lower left suggest it's not a power connector. The StarTech splitter is for powering 4 HDDs when the psu only has 1 Sata connector. I never use splitters - prefer a psu with all the necessary cables.

Sorry i'm not very computer techy , all the stuff you just said means exactly nowt to me . I built this computer myself watching someone on youtube and thinking that looks pretty easy . Having a bit spare cash at the time I took the specs from a decent priced gaming PC on Ebay ( so they should all work together ) . And I built it , it seems to work ok but I'm not sure if all the cables are in right or not . The power leads went in now and again and again I think there was 8 small leads in 1 power plug and another had 6 and 2 I think .

I bought a SATA Serial ATA Power Splitter lead 1 Male to 3 Way Female Triple Output Cable online , but the sata end is the same as the on in the computer. There is also a sata power adapter in with the power leads . One end fits over the sata cable in the computer , I hope you can understand all this . Thank you .

The sata adapter looks like it could be just hanging (there is a small plastic oblong with 2 screws holding it to the case . along with 3 other cables with small square plugs on the end , in the vid I think he mentioned for fans .)

It is for the fan controller built into the case that he mentions in the video. The power supply should have a series of those connections for powering up hard drives and the like so it just needs connecting up to one of those and you can run three x three pin fans off it according to the video though I suspect that you could run more than that with splitters. You may need an extension on the SATA power connection just to make getting power to it that bit easier - if you do then just search ebay for "SATA power extension" and pick one up for a couple of quid.
