  1. Hi,
    I am soon going to get another SATA drive. Do the drives need to run off the same power cable? if so would the far end cable connect to the C drive or does it not really matter? Thanks

    The power cable is pretty much irrelevant. Connect it any way you like. (Just don't use the powered SATA cable and a separate power cable together).

    You need a motherboard manual to explain this.
