    Right Angle Molex?


    Is there such a thing as a right angle molex power connector? I have been looking for one that lies nearly flat against what it plugs in to, but can't find one.

    I have a home theater case and an add-in USB 3.0 card, but it requires a molex power connection. Problem is, the lid of the case sits close to the top of the card, so a standard molex connector won't allow the lid to be put on the case.

    I don't know if this will help you. I looks like a right angel adapter.

    That's the (male) end you would solder to say a hard drive circuit board. I think DeaconFrost is looking for the female end that's on the power supply cable.

    You tried. The headers are lot shorter when there is no wire to crimp on, and your soldering them to a circuit board. It's just that the end on the circuit board is usually a male connector.

    I should have checked MonoPrice. That might actually work. I'll have to do some quick measuring to make sure, but that is the closest thing I've seen so far. Thanks!
