Just cut the Molex already... run the red to power, and the black to ground. Both blacks are ground, and the yellow isn't used. They run on 5v power, last I checked, so you'll need to get a 5v power supply. Might even be able to build one cheap that takes 12v and puts out 5v easily.

Edit: I believe the MB uses 5v, and the drives use 12v on second thought, but I may be wrong...

In a computer, if they hook to the yellow and black wires it would be 12 volt. If they hook to the red and black of the molex, they are 5 volt and you need a converter.

I have the SVC 6" cold cathode in my headlight assembly. I just wired them straight in, red power and black gnd. The only problem I had was, I tried to use one converter and put one light a piece in the headlight. I extended the wires to go to the other headlight and it didn't work. I'm guessing power wasn't strong enough. So I just put two bulbs a piece in the headlights. The lights can be modified I.E. break the plastic square's that are on the end of the tubes. I can't post pics of the plastic pieces off but I will try to post pics of the lights themselves.

I had a pair of two blue cold cathodes from my computer case, then I decided to put them in my car, so all I did was cut the black and red wire before it got to the molex connector and hooked it up to the ground and remote wire on my amp and it worked fine
