Exclamation Is my power configuration safe? Fire hazard?

I have a Corsair RM 750X and I plan to power several devices.

I am going to use CP-8920186 SATA cable.

There are four SATA power connectors on this cable.

#1 Goes to a Seagate 2 TB HDD ST2000DM006
#2 Goes to a 512 GB Crucial MX300
#3 Goes to a 512 GB Crucial MX300
#4 is the problem kid

I plan to split number four two power:
- ASUS DVD writer 24F1ST
- Alienware Aurora R4 Master control board

The Aurora Board powers five Noctua Fans (2 X 0.96 + 3 X 0.72), the board itself and AlienFX LED (maybe around 10 Watts).

Am I going to burn my cables? Do I put too many devices? SSDs consume negligible power and DVD drive is comparable to HDD.

Please help me.

Never split connectors if you don't have to.

Use multiple SATA cables.
