Confused about power cables

Ok so i started my first build, and i got to doing the sata power cables. I'm a little confused, there is one cable thats on the psu with 2 SATA power plugs, two molex and then a 4 pin connector at the end
I have no idea what im supposed to do with this cable, and i need the SATA power connectors for my hdd and ssd. Will it be fine if i only plug in the SATA power plugs or do i have to do something with the molex and the 4 pins?

    They are additional connectors, you don't need to use them, just connect the SATA power connectors to your HDD and SSD :) if you don't need to 4pins or the molex connectors, just leave them alone, try to took them away somewhere in your case.
