conecting 4 Sata con a 3 way Cable

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello...
Well Today I started modding my PSU. Getting a little edge before my Sleeving matterial arrives.

But I have one question. My PSU is moddular and it has a cable that feeds power to only three HDDS. But I have 4 HDDs and I don't wanna use another whole, long cable just to use ONE sata power. My question is "can I add another Sata power to my Cable?

My PSU is Antec TP 650W

It will be like this



Yes, I know... Its the WORST Diagram someone could draw. But it gives the idea... I hope...

Thanks!

You sure can. SATA power connectors are just attached by pushing the wires into grooves which cut through the insulation. All you need to do is pull one connector from the other cable and put it on the first one. Obviously you might need to remove some sleeving, which you'd be doing anyway, right?

If you want, you can move all the connectors to make the cable look like your diagram with just enough wire between each connector to span the gap between devices.

Yes, I have redone the cable. There's only the needed cable between the HDDs.

Thanks!! Rep+
