Seasonic - modular PCIe cable to SATA, is it possible?

Power Supplies - AnandTech Forums - forums.anandtech.com
I own Seasonic G550 power supply in my NAS box. It's a great power supply, but it only comes with four 6-pin plugs for peripherals. Four plugs mean I'm limited to 16 drives unless I go server case with backplanes for power delivery which I do not want to do.

I'm not at the 16 drives yet, but I did start to wonder what would I have to do if I ever needed more than 16 drives. One option would be to go server case with hard drive backplane which I do not want to do. Another option would be to get bigger power supply with five 6-pin peripheral plugs. And the last, purely theoretical option at this point would be to make my own SATA cables that terminate in PCIe plugs on the power supply that will never be used in my NAS box. moddiy sells modular connectors and I can get sata cables for seasonic power supply, all I'd need to do is to reterminate sata cables with PCIe modular connectors. Does anyone know if it's possible to reterminate Seasonic 6 pin power cable into PCIe modular plug? Is it electrically possible?
