    Default Multiple Hard Drives on single feed.

    Hey guys River Rat checking in.

    I have a system with 9 hard drives and found SATA clamp ons. So instead of having all this spaghetti wiring I want to install the SATA power connectors on ONE line from the PS. (Seasonic 700M) Will 8 raptor 150's and a Seagate 7200.10 be too much? The wire on the Seasonic is not very heavy gauge either.

    I would use two. I think 9 on one would be too much.

    Ouch, I'm just going to leave things alone! Everything is working like a champ as it is.

    This Seasonic is blowing warm air. The heatsink inside reads over 140F in one spot according to a recently calibrated infrared camera. :Q

    As long as it doesn't BLOW UP (cough liberty) I'm ok.

    140F isn't that bad. I had a PSU that was exhausting at 72c(~162F)!
