MQT Power Pin Connector

by sugarbear246 / February 18, 2016 7:19 PM PST

My Mid-Tower...(Raidmax Z1000BP) has the Regular (Pin Connector) from the Power to the Motherboard.
There is a "SATA" Cable that has the "SATA" Pin Connector and "Power" Connector....AND a Power Connector I've Never Heard of?
(It the "MQT" Power Connector)?
Anybody Familiar with This Connector and Where Does it Plug in on the Motherboard or Elsewhere?
Thanks;

Without a picture I can't guess what the connector is.

If no picture then a link to the product that has it may do.

I wouldn't worry about it. But this could be for control thermostat (just guessing).

I Guess No One Seems to be Able to give a Precise Answer as to WHAT this Pin Connector is Intended for? It's Connected to a SATA Cable from the Power Source....that Has the Power Connector for the Drive Attached as Well as this (MQT 4 Pin Connector? Hope Someone has Experience with this Type of Connector?

Put it up on imgur, photobucket or such

Then just give a link to it. A product manual would be nice too since then I could see what the connection is for.

Your pic shows a sata power cable and a mqt jumper cable.
The jumper cable is not used for a sata device.
Meaning things like a hdd/ssd/optical don't use that.

Perhaps if you had a fan controller installed that jumper might be needed.
For now just set the jumper aside.

I agree.

Just extra connections you may or may not have to use.

Thanks for the Info! Someone Else has Suggested the Same think that this "MQT" 4 Pin Connector would Probably be Used for a "Fan Controller"!
Glad to Know I don't need to Stress Over Where this is Supposed to be Connectoed!
Thanks Everyone!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
