With all boards in place, you're supposed to use all PSUs.  In any case,
since I don't have any of the blockouts, removing any PPSU would
probably have a potentially-expensive negative impact on cooling airflow.

I haven't tried running it with only a single disk, and haven't ever
gotten around to trying it with fewer and larger disks because I've
never been able to spare the money for says.  I suspect it's still going
to draw a lot of power, though doubtless not quite as much.
