I'm building my first pc, and both my hard drive and my dvd burner support SATA. I've bought SATA data cables for both of them, but what about power? I think i saw that my psu only had 1 sata connector.

Thats an older power supply(you can tell by the red switch), but in the connectors section you can see that it actually has 8 SATA power connectors

1x 20+4 pin Main Connector
1x 4 pin ATX12V Connector
1x 8 pin EPS12V Connector
1x 6 pin PCI-E Connector
1x 6+2 pin PCI-E Connector
2x 4 pin Peripheral Connector (Quick-release)
8x 5 pin SATA Connector
1x 4 pin Floppy Connector

I would get a newer psu but its part of a combo I want

And thanks, I thought 8 x 5 was the size of a connector for some reason
