Looking for expert comments

My 3HDD are connected via single sata rail as space among them is little short than the space among the sata power ports so the rail is little BENDED like an "S".
Is there any problem with this configuration?or should I use extra molex to connect them?

  1. No problem, I bent my sata way more than that and a couple a times one one cable. As long the cable isn't broken or snapped it will be fine.
  2. Best answer
    As long as the cable is not putting enough pressure to bend the connctor you are completely fine.

    The cable in the power cable is stranded and can take the bending.
    Solid core (single thick wire) cables like coax and in-wall/riser etherent (the kind in a box without ends) are solid core and should not have tight bends
  3. You should be just fine with that setup as long as the cables are not popping off of the connectors there will not be any problems. And as said above there is no undo pressure on the HDD connectors.
