I'm just trying to play it safe really.

As an example, if you have a sata power cable that has 4 sata power connectors in a daisychain setup can you run 4 devices from it ?

At the min i run the following on it.

1 x optical drive
1 x bluray drive
1 x 128GB SSD
1 x fan controller (Scythe Kaze Master) via a sata power to molex adapter.

My PSU is a Corsair AX850W

If you're just using the connectors on the PSU's original cabling you can have a device connected to all of them.

If you have aftermarket extension cables then you need to ensure you don’t overload the plug where it connects to the PSU’s cabling.

Thanks Bremen

I'm using all the original cables, the only thing ive done on one of the sata power connectors is ive put a sata power to molex adapter to run a fan controller from it. That just saves me running a molex cable to the fan controller.
