They say out of the box you can plug 14 hdds to it but shouldnt a 1600w psu be able to support much more?

There's videos on youtube that show how to add more sata connectors to psu cables, what is the max sata power connectors a 6 pin sata port from this psu can handle?

I read also there are special cables where you can even use the 8 pin vga ports to connect hdds as they have a converter that outputs the required 5v for hdds.

Long story short can the evga 1600 psu be modified to support more hdds and what would be the max it can handle?

All of them.

Seriously it should be fine though with as many drives as you can provide power to.

What’s the wattage needed to trip the overvolt protection on the rail for the molexs?

Once you reach that limit you won’t be able to add more without it shutting down on you.

I was running as many as 24 HDD’s from a 850 watt PSU fine but once I put the server under water i had to add a second PSU since it couldn’t handle that much on that rail.

adding 24 fans and two pumps was just too much I guess
