8x4-pin molex cable for powering 8 disk RAID array?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a cable or set of cables that makes it easy to power an 8 SATA disk RAID array without having to use a ton of 4-pin molex y-adapters. Any suggestions?

there are splitters like

or daisy-chain extensions like

I have used both. they work fine

if your initial power cable is molex, get one molex-SATA adapter Y ->2 daisy chains

molex-sata Y:
