450w SFX - SATA capacity?

Hi everyone,

 

I am building a new UNRAID media server in a Fractal Node 804 case. On a lot of reccomendations I got the Corsair 450w SFX PSU, however I messed up my calculations as it only comes with the cables to power 6 SATA drives. I need the ability to power 8 SATA drives.

 

Is there anyway to expand the capacity of the 450w SFX to power 8 Sata drives (through adaptors / different cables) or would I need a different PSU?

 

Sorry for the noob question, and grateful for any advice.

I have some SATA power splitter cables for 5 devices and I run 2 of them off of one peripheral cable and it has not been a problem.

 

I use these as I have SATA cards galore to support vast numbers of hard disks
