1 out of 5 eggsWARNING: Danger, Will Robinson!

Pros: Convenient for the Norco RPC-4224 server case that I bought at the same time

Cons: SHORT-CIRCUITED MY BUILD
1 WIRED in REVERSE (ie 12v vs. 5v pins swapped on one connector)
AWFUL quality control!
Power source lead needs to be longer than 2 inches - it is all but inaccessible in their own server cases! (also makes discovering BAD WIRING impossible!)

Other Thoughts: Bought 2, connected both for redundancy (2 connectors per backplane): one top-to-bottom, the other bottom-to-top. Plugged each into a separate cable on my 750W Corsair, for reliability (single 12V rail/62A - that's an ARC WELDER).

Turned it on and KABOOM! All 12 drives dropped out my Adaptec 5805Z + expander array!

When the smoke cleared, I found the problem: A STRAIGHT SHORT_CIRCUIT

On one cable, the male end that plugs into the PSU was wired BACKWARDS!!! Yes, the 12v pins from the 7 females were wired to the 5v male position, and vice-verse!
Verifying against the other cable, yes, just the one connector on the one cable was WIRED IN REVERSE!


Had to rebuild EVERYTHING - still unsure of lingering damage done to other components.

SHAME ON YOU NORCO - how could this pass Quality Control? I pay you $8 for a 50-cent wire on expectation of QUALITY. How can customers trust you with their precious data with unreliable stuff like this?

NOT SERVER-GRADE QUALITY!!!

3 out of 5 eggsNot that great

Pros: Lots of Molex connections. For fan power it is perfect

Cons: The build quality on the 7 female ends is "ok", but the Male end is really really bad, it took a lot of work to line up the pins to connect to my PSU Molex. How stable they were depended on how hard you held the wires coming out the back. It was far too easy to have pin-1 touching the top of the molex sleeve and pin-4 touching the bottom...making fitting the connection nearly impossible.

Other Thoughts: I worry about powering the 6 SAS back planes in my Norco case on one lead from the PSU...so I ended up using 3 of the 4 molex that came with the CPU to power them, connected this product to the last slot and then used 3 of these for the other connections. That left me the rest of this cable to power fans..and worked well. I think 2 1-Male to 4-Female of better quality would have been the right answer.

1 out of 5 eggsNot true Molex-conforming design

Pros: Lots of 4-pin power connections

Cons: These connectors are ALMOST standard molex. But they don't quite fit right, the pins are not held in place the way a standard Molex connector would hold them, and they also appear to use the lower-spec housing (rated for 6 amps instead of 11, I believe). The pins *love* to push out the back of the connector housing when you try to plug them in, so have a small flathead ready to push them in. And when disconnecting, pull the wires, NOT the housing, so that the pins don't get left behind!

Rather than a fan-out design, this device uses a daisy-chain of crimp-spliced wires. I did not test, but would be worried about the quality of power available to any device at the end of the chain.

Other Thoughts: If you know exactly what you're doing and how much power you're drawing, this device is usable and can fill a specific need. But if you didn't study electrical engineering, are not comfortable reconstructing molex connectors, or do not want the associated frustrations, steer clear. I wish there were a suitable alternative I could recommend.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of money.

Pros: Can't say there are any.

Cons: Pins pushed out of the connector on this one the first time I tried to connect it to power. They refused to stay seated afterward until I just gave up and threw it in the trash.

Other Thoughts: Had good luck with the other Norco cables I bought. Maybe I just got a bad one...

3 out of 5 eggsNORCO C-P1T7 4Pin Molex 1 Male to 7 Female Power Extension Splitter Cable

Pros: It does what it was made for and it does it well. I purchased an Azza 2000R and other hardware like my PCI card, HDD and DVD drive that utilizes a few of my existing Molex connectors. Well I have research this case extensively. I have research each component of my build thoroughly. No seriously I really have. Took me a full three months of research for my build. WEll anyways I knew with the 8 stock fans + my Ultra kaze and my existing hardware I would need one of these. I truly could not have hooked up everything without this.

Cons: Sloppy connections. The connections inside of the plastic are all crooked. Some of the female connectors were too tight and they needed to be spread apart and loosened to properly connect with their male counterpart pins had to be straightened.

Other Thoughts: Absolute necessity for the azza 2000. Easily fits underneath the motherboard in the case allowing for the daisy chain to work great and be hidden so my interior looks neat.

2 out of 5 eggsThey are a 1 to 7 Cable

Pros: As mentioned in the title they are a 1 to 7 splitter

Cons: Not sure that I got the same product as the other reviewers. What I received was very cheaply made. The wires in each connect are extremely loose and you really have to be careful to line each of the four up with what you are connecting it to be it the male or female.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it is supposed to do.

Pros: Can turn one single Molex in to seven!

Cons: Each female Molex is kind of close together which can be a pro and a con.

Other Thoughts: This is perfect for adding additional Molex power to your computer!

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: This fit the bill perfectly. I bought a NORCO RPC-4220 4U Rackmount Server Chassis w/ 20 Hot-Swappable, and there are five backplanes all which their own power molexes. However my PSU did have that many of the standard power molex as it did the new SATA connector. So this easily rectified this situation.

Cons: None, these are high quality cables and fit nicely into place.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't try to power too much over one of these, but with that said it is running 20 x 1.5TB WD green 3.5" HDs without any issue.
