[Stupid Question] RAID = 2 SATA's, PSU = 1 SATA connector??

OK, I know this is a stupid question but I must ask because I've never set up my own RAID before...

Every power supply I've seen for sale has 1 SATA HDD power connector.

So how do ppl RAID 2x SATA HDD's when power supplies only have 1 SATA connector?

  1. well i dont know where you are looking....mine has 2 and its nothing special

    Also they make adapters that turn reg power plugs into sata ones....

    So you could have a lot of SATA drives
  2. Your SATA drive should come with an adapter to turn a 4 pin molex into a SATA power connection. No need to worry mate.

    I was talking to the guy who asked the question. If you were confused by that then perhaps you are the kind of person who would stab someone in the eye with a soldering iron.

    Thanks for taking this thread way off topic.
