HX850W Capability?


Recommended Posts

Hello -


I'm looking at purchasing this power supply to use for a custom WHS server box I'm building that will house 24 SATA drives for a home video server. I see that this supply comes with cables for 12 SATA power connections and 12 peripheral (4-pin) connectors. Looking at the manual it would appear that the cables could be plugged into any of the 6 black sockets on the PSU. Would I be correct in assuming that if I purchased 3 more SATA cables I could have a PSU that supports 24 SATA drives? I'd rather go that route than use the 4-pin molex to SATA adapters for 12 hard drives.


Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.
