Hey all, just a quick newbie question, i recently bought a Corsair TX750W power supply for my first build and on the box it says it has 6/8 SATA connnectors can't remember which it's not with me atm. Anyway I opened it up and in the endless intestines of cables there was only 2 visible SATA connectors and all the rest were 4 pin, 24 pin and molex? (6 pin) connectors but only 2 SATA power connectors.
Any ideas? :o 
Thanks

Two connectors, or two cables? It should only have two cables containing SATA connectors, but they should have more than one connector on each cable.

^5 +1 what cjl said.

The Corsair TX750 has two SATA power cables. Each cable has 4 SATA connectors for a total of 8 connections.

Right, thanks guys i'll take another look. 4 in 1 cable? won't that be a pain in the arse to connect them all up if they are 5 - 10 CM apart or are they designed so that you pretty much have one row of them for the hard drives and 1 row for the optical drives sorta thing
Thanks all for your help :D

The connectors have a proper amount of spacing between each to allow for installation flexibility.

Yes, but I'd prefer 3 cables, each with three connectors for a little more flexibility. Otherwise great PSU.
