Solved First-time build, PSU cable issues Tags: Homebuilt SATA Power Supplies Cable Power Build Systems Last response: September 17, 2010 8:39 PM in Systems Share Duckmeister December 16, 2009 9:09:23 PM I am currently wiring up my build. I am using a Corsair CMPSU-850HX as my power supply. Since it is a modular PSU, it comes with a bag of cables that connect at one end to the power supply and at the other end to a device. However, it's not just one end. Each cable has 4 of whatever connector. So, if I put it a SATA power cable into the PSU, on the other end there are 4 SATA power connectors, strung throughout the cable. My question is, can I power four SATA devices with that one cable? Or do I have to get another SATA power cable in order to power more than one SATA device? Thanks in advance.

Multiple HDDs on one and multiple optical drives on another would be fine.
