So I just got the same model and I have been following this forum religiously. I have the screws for the HDs but now how are any of you powering the drives? I cannot figure out how to power them at all. I have seen people say that there is a proprietary 6pin connector but it is not available for the US right now. So are you guys using some third party cables to power your drive or what? 

 

Thank you

@DavyJonesCapn,

Still need a clear picture of the 6 pin connector (without shadows).

So, I cobbled together a working cable by ordering a similar Dell cable off of Amazon and rewiring/soldering.   However, myself and another person on this forum, had two different models of Envy 795 (I have a 40xt) and we arrived at a different Pinouts using volt meters.  (This worries me a bit, before giving out this advice as generic for all Envy 795 models)

I started out my journey by calling HP Support, and the Parts dept (after contacting a supplier).    None of these people could help me.  I begged for Technical details on the board, and an availability date for the P/N.   I occassionally log on to part-surfer to see if it is avail.  No new news.  

I found a European based store on eBay that claimed to be able to get the part.   Only thing is they wanted $50 up front with no delivery date.  Needless to say, I didn't pull the trigger on that purchase.

@papawupa,

Here is a clear picture (so far offered) of the motherboard header       and some discription of the pin blockers.

No one stocks it in the USA, and I doubt any company would try to create the pin, as it's property of Dyson.
