I actually have a better method. I took a piggy back molex extension plug about two feet long, cut the female off the other end, which just left me with the male plug and 4 wires comming out.

I then soldered 2 banana plugs onto the +12V and an earth. Banana plugs are the universal standard connection for multimeters, so I just unplug my probes, connect this molex adapter, and plug it into a PSU molex plug.

Gives much better reliablility, given the iffyness of molex connectors, and allows you to take long term readings / use a CRO reliably.
