PSU with maximum number of SATA Cables

Which smps comes with maximum sata cables. I want one for a server upgrade. The one which we have right now has around 4 sata cables only. The server act as file storage location for the network. Rightnow it has 4 hard drive of 500GB each. We are planing to upgrade it to 1TB. There will be two more drives in it. But the cables are limited. I want a good psu which can be useful in future also. Where we can easily add up multiple hard drives.

Cooler Master Thunder 600 Watts PSU will be good enough for you. This psu offer you 600 Watts of power support with 6 sata cable. So that is quiet enough. You can add up multiple drives on it easily.

Re: PSU with maximum number of SATA Cables

You can get maximum upto 16 sata cables for psu. That is the maximum. Those are all extreme level psu. Like Corsair CMPSU-1200 AXUK 1200 Watts PSU. This comes for Rs.22000. It is a high end and ideally designed for extreme system. For your requirement I think going for 8 sata cable psu is more than enough. Anyhow to add a very high storage space you will also have to upgrade your system. Many motherboard comes with a limitation of 2TB or 3TB drive. So buying a 8 sata cable is quiet enough for adding up enough storage. The cheapest one under this is Corsair CMPSU-650TX 650 Watts PSU which comes for Rs.6400. And if you require more power then you can go for Seasonic M12II-750 750 Watts PSU which comes for Rs.8300. This psu are easily available on the web. If you go for lower you wll get more cheaper models.

I think psu with 6 sata cable will be more than enough for you. For a decent performance Cooler Master Thunder 500W 500 Watts PSU will be nice. It gives you 6 hard drive support with simple connectivity.
