Ok I have the sata data connector part down, but Im lost on the power side. All I can find is this https://www.amazon.com/BitFenix-Alchemy-Multisleeve-4-Pin-Adapter/dp/B00HVBOLNS/ref=sr_1_19?ie=UTF8&qid=1484157561&sr=8-19&keywords=sata+power+cable

All the others are super ugly.

1: Is that the kind of cable I want? Molex to sata power? Or is it soemthing else entirely?

2: Any suggestions for attractive sata power cables. Preferably red or white.

Thanks thanks.

The psu should have sata power cables so if you want a coloured one a sata > sata sleeved extension should be fine ... tho I don't see any listed there from bitfenix at amazon.

Depending on your psu brand/model there's companies (cablemod for example) that can provide a complete set of coloured sleeved power cable replacements.

Ok that's what I was starting to see. I can't justify a new power supply just for cable colors. Can you use the kits to extend the existing cables? Or are there comparability issues?

There shouldn't be any issues, all the cable ends are standardised, tho I still don't see a sata > sata extension even at the cablemod site

But you can still use molex > sata ofc, and I might ask in the modding sub forum as folks who are into that kinda thing might be able to point you in the right direction.

Look up "sleaved sata extention" iirc silverstone, nzxt, and rosewill all make them starting at around $5 each (though the price varies wildly) you can get extentions for any cable you want, but you'll have to make sure you have the space to put the extra slack where it won't be an eyesore. There are companies like cablemods that specialise in this kind of thing, but they can get quite expensive.
