Connector Cap Mod: Prevent arginalized overclocked machines to crash

An optical drive that's just starting to spin up can suddenly draw a large amount of current. This can cause marginalized overclocked machines to crash or reset. My overclocked Athlon XP rig at 2.4 GHz at 1.75V on a 300W PSU, crashes when the following conditions are met:

* 100% CPU load
* DVD drive spins from zero to top speed
