My cases psu has 24 pin ; 1 x 4 pin 12vl 2 x SATA: 2 x molex; 1 x FDD connectors.

Am I supposed to use one of the PSU connectors to power up my ata hard drive?
Im building a pc for the first time and everything works fine so far only need to add a hard drive. I have added a serial data cable to my drive and to the motherboard but don’t know whether I should use one of the psu connector cable to the drives power section.
Cause my cases psu has 24 pin ; 1 x 4 pin 12vl 2 x SATA: 2 x molex; 1 x FDD connectors.

Thank you

You should have a SATA power connector coming from your power supply. It looks like this:
