Well, a friend is building a computer, and his RGB controllee requires Molex power, and his PSU doesnt have Molex.

Is it safe to snip the end of a SATA power connector amd wire it to a molex? I know that SATA uses an extra wire (orange, which is 3.3v rail, and not needed on Molex), but would it be alright to leave that one loose and match up the other 4 wires on the Molex?
