Sata power cable


in my system i've installed a sata 3 SSD and a sata 2 HDD.

Can I put them on the same power cable, so I only need 1 cable?
My sata powercables have 3 connections on 1 cable (after each other with some space between them).
Or is it best to use different cables when you have spare cables and not use the free connections then?

  1. the 1 connector is fine. if its got 3 connectors its fine to plug 3 sata devices (ROMS & HDD's) onto it.
  2. All the drives are low power so they can share cable which improves cable management and airflow.
  3. Ok. I'm gone put my ssd and hdd to 1 cable.
    Thanks for the info.
  4. My power supply comes with about 4 of the same plug on one wire. If yours has that too, then it should be find to do so.
