My System Specs


If I had the choice I'd run another line from the PSU because I find adaptors can get loose more easily than cables clipped to my PSU, but as JD said it should be fine. (my PSU has a modular cable with 4 SATA, and I used that with no issue with 3 hard drives and an SSD)

no output can deliver more than 240 VA continuously (240 VA is the same thing as 240 W in a DC circuit) ... this limit is PER WIRE. **
I'd like to see a combination of 4 hard drives that can draw anywhere near 240W
