    I am making a SATA power cable with a male Molex end. My problem is that 2 of the 4 wires are not the usual colors (yellow black red black)this on has black grey orange and red. Can someone tell me what the grey and orange are?
    Thanks

    ground(black). on the white molex connector with the flatside down(because the end looks like a "D"), you would have yellow(12v) black(gnd) black(gnd) red(5v). with the black female sata power connector with copper pins side showing, you have yellow black red black.

    connect the male connector to your psu drive connectors. if your psu drive connectors are using standard colors then they will tell you what your molex power connector colors will be. i've already told you & even JST1946 linked you to the pinouts but you are not comprehending what we told you.
