No using one of those cables won't impact performance BTW those are for power not data. I thought u were talking about the data cable that goes into the motherboard. If this solved your problem please mark this post as best answer.☺

I currently have a Crucial SSD in my PC and have just bought a Samsung EVO to install, they are both SATA III connection. My motherboard came with SATA cables that have multiple input ports so you only have to use 1 for both the drives, but will that slow them down because the data is only going through 1 cable instead of 2?

 

(I'm just adding the EVO for extra storage not replacing the crucial)

 

Motherboard is the MSI Z170A M5

Do u have a picture of the multiport SATA cable as I have never heard of them though it depends on whether the drives are able to use only half the speed of the connection
