I'm currently running 5 hard drives and 1 SSD in a Corsair 500R case. The issue that I have is with my power supplies SATA power connectors. The net jacket is too stiff (and the space between the connectors is too long) so there's no way to wire all 6 drives facing the proper direction. Because of this I had to install 3 of my drives backwards so I could wire them. What adapter would you guys recommend so I could wire all 6 of them in a tight space?

Monoprice has this power splitter and molex adapter but I'm wondering if there's anything better.

Sorry for getting back to you so late but,in short yes they'll be just fine.I used this type of setup when my old psu didn't have enough sata power connections.Plus the psu I was using wasn't even close to corsair quality.
