Power Supply 4x Molex Cable Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
In a few weeks I'll be ordering the parts needed for a computer. My question is since I'm trying to pre-plan everything and reduce wire clutter and all, should I be able to power this many items with a single 4x Molex power cable?

This is the Power Supply I plan on buying: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817194096

The case I'm getting uses a Molex cable to power the 2 hard drives in the hot swap bays.
The Fan controller I plan on getting uses a Molex cable to power it all.
I plan on getting 1 Molex to Sata converters to power the SSD and the Blu-Ray Burner.
The H100 uses a Molex for power.

If it matters, here is the converter I was going to get: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812816038

As for the SSD, the hard drives, and the fan controllers, I'm open to suggestions.

1x SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147164
2x Hard Drives: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136792
1x Blu-Ray Burner: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106348
1x Fan Controller: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811997019

All fans in the case will be plugged into the fan controller. 7 fans in total. I'd like a 5 channel fan controller with only knobs (not too sure how multiple fans in the same channel would work with RPM and temperature readings), preferably black so it would match my case.

4x 200mm fans: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103073
2x 120mm fans: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103061
1x 140mm fan: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233092

Should all this be able to be powered through the Single 4x Molex cable safely or what should I do?

Any and all help is appreciated.

It has more to do with how much power is available on the PSU rail the moped connection is on.

Yes, one molex connection will support what you propose to connect to it, assuming the rest of the stuff on that rail doesn't overtax the rail.
