I have an old Rosewill Silent Night 500w PSU that has 4 8-pin connectors on it for pcie or sata connections I guess. It doesn't look like a standard 8 pin sata connector fits so I'm assuming they are specific to the power supply.

My question is I only have one cable that fits into the socket that has 2 sata and 2 molex connections.... Is there any restrictions on how many hard drives I can connect to that single socket? I have 8 hard drives I was planning on connecting using sata extenders. They are also NAS drives so not sure if they make a difference. On top of th

is I was hoping to add a raid controller eventually to add more drives.
