That "power connector" is a jumper bay. As Miguel explains the two "L-
shaped" things are what gets used for SATA (the short one is data, the 
long one is power). An old IDE drive would have had a Molex power 
connector on the right - where you see "nothing" now.

BTw: you *do* realize that naming it "hard disk geometry" implies 
something very different to the reader?
