I have a CoolerMaster Silent pro M2 620W

This is a new build ... the SATA connection ribbon cables include daisy chain header plugs ... i.e. to connect to 2 SATA drives off one ribbon cable.
Is this still seen as OK ? .... and no need to run a separate lead to each drive?

In my case one lead would go to SSD and then off same ribbon to the HDD

It's fine as a hard disk doesn't draw much current.

This is tottally fine. All PSU are assembled this way, each "cable" has enough power to deliver to every component.
