I'm a complete noob at the inner workings of a computer and just trying to add 2 hdd and 1 ssd. My computer has enough sata ports for all of them but only has 1 sata power connector which is already in use. It does however have quite a few wires tucked away that I'm thinking can be used if there is a sata power converter. So my questions are

Is there a such thing as a converter wire and if so what's it called? Also these additional wires are all connected to 1 main wire so would hooking multiple drives to it even work? Below is a pic of the wires I'm talking about.

Yeah I build it from scratch, with my own transistors and everything.

You probably have more SATA ports hidden somewhere. If not. you are looking for a MOLEX to SATA adapter.

Thanks thats exactly what I was looking for. Can I put one of these on each of of the wires in the pictures even though they are all running off 1 main big wire?

Really? I thought everyone bought prebuilt parts and then put them in a prebuilt case

Yes. I went out, mined my own raw materials, machined my own plastics, smelted my own iron, fabricated my own transistors on my own self-built machinery, and then painstakingly assembled the entire system piece by aching piece.

Imagine just how long it would take to build something from scratch... That would be nuts.

For reference... here's a guy who built a toaster from scratch
