So, I recently bought Samsung evo 870 500gb ssd and I was wondering if its safe to use this SATA power splitters. They came with the PSU which coolermaster v1000 gold. There were other sata power cables with psu too but I lost them some where, so im left with thse and idk if these are safe to use. I heard of some sata power splitters as being a fire hazard etc,
P.S: Im gonna use this splitter with 1x1TiB HDD and 1x500GiB SSD thats all.
Pics:
This is the splitter side that goes into SSD/HDD; its split 3ways- u can see one end is inserted into the HDD(2 remain free), haven't inserted my ssd yet, i wanna confirm, if its safe to use

Do NOT use modular cables from one PSU with another PSU....! (Differing pinouts on PSU insertion points will fry your stuff ' lickety split'!
Chance that you can insert the cable's 5-pin connector to anything else than a specially designed PSU port for it is slim.
I searched online and found that these cables arent original, but since i bought this psu in used market and this cable came with it, also they look like they have the same pin outs and i have been using this cable for my HDD for 1year now without any issues, so should I use this with my SSD or not?

Of course you can use it.

The last few posts are talking about other aspect than your concern about the SSD, you can ignore them.
