Question about SATA

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

    8x 5 pin SATA 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
