Modern PSUs have plenty of power on the +12v line. However, HDs pull from this and the +5v line. The 620HX has up to 30A available on the +5v line. Current HDs use less than 1A on the +5v in use.... except on spin-up. They probably use closer to 1.5-2A when they first start up. On server, they have an option for delay startup of HDs to stagger this momentary power draw.


That being said.... 30A should be fine for 8 hard drives. If you had 12-15, then I would start to be careful.
