Hi all its been awhile since im planning to build a new computer.

My question is i am going to build a custom case for 5 internal sata hard drive and i like to hook them up external into a case im building.
is there a way i can power them with a spare power supply i have laying around and hook up the custom case via 1 esata cable? The Hard Drive WILL NOT BE IN A RAID of any sort.
Thanks for any help you guys can give me

You need to create a power switch to short the pins on the 20/24 pin motherboard connector.
