RE: Sata power cable Inspiron 3650

I had the same issue trying to get the secondary sata power cable for the 2.5 sata drives. In first order, they sent me the primary sata power cable which only has one sata power connection and one dvd drive connection. P/N=KC81G. The sales rep insisted this was the right cable.

I called back and discuss this with another sales rep who was able to help me. She said yes there are 2 different part numbers and the correct one is P/N=GP2JM. Once I received it I installed it and it worked perfect.

The part cost $4.99 with free shipping.

Oh, they have no pictures to show what they look like.

You are so lucky that can get support from Dell, I can't got any from Dell HK, they just reply won't send me for just one cable

I wrote what I did here.  I got the bracket for a 2.5 drive and they ended up sending me the same cable they use for the primary, for my secondary.  Good Luck.  If you use a splitter, make sure it has got at least on long leg to the hard drive sata power connector cable. I think the splitter  shown previously in this thread would be short, or at least a pain

I am wondering whether that 1 power connection on the motherboard is strong enough for 2 hard drives and 1 optical drive. Does it give enough power and won't it burn through because of the unusual higher voltage?

I don't find any problem so far, you won't normally use all three device at the same time

The power supply to two hard drives and one optical drive has nothing to do with the motherboard.

The computer power supply is a discrete unit, with a wiring harness that sends power using various connectors to both the motherboard and all the devices that require a power supply.

Yes, it is more than adequate to supply the power needs of two HD's and the optical drives.

I am not in the US but I requested my sister who lives there to order the cable part # GP2JM and send it to me. I used Sales Chat and verified that it is available for $4.99. Will post here again to report if it works out (fingers crossed).

I am also concerned with overloading 1 power socket with 3 drives. Best to have a dedicated power cable for the SSD that I am planning to add.
