# Two power supplies in one machine

cablehard drivepower supply

I have two hard disks which I would like to use. When I bought the second one I didn't realize that my power supply only had one hard disk cable.

Is there any way I can still use my second one, like a connector or something? If not, I have a newer one (900W) that I haven't used, but a friend said that it's too powerful for the use of my computer and might cause some damage.

Any solutions?

For using one power cable for two disks, you may use what's called Internal Power Supply Cable Splitter or Power Supply Y Cable from your local electronics shop. However, ensure that your PSU is up to the task.
