Default Power for an External Lighting node pro?


I'm interested in powering some Corsair LEDs outside of my case.

Would the following power adapters be good enough to power an external lighting node pro? I only plan on using 4-6 strips for some additional desk lighting


110v AC to DC 12v Power Supply with 4pin Molex (5000mA)

CRJ 4-Pin Male Molex to 15-Pin Female SATA Power 12" Sleeved Adapter Cable

Nope. The Molex power supply only provides the 12V rail. The NoPro needs only the 5V rail; it doesn't use the 12V rail at all.

Most of us use a small PSU just for it with a switched jumper.
