PSU didn't came with power cord

I don't understand much of this so would like an opinion here, Is this math sound? Someone told me this..

 

A 10A power cord can deliver up to 127V x 10A = 1.270 Watts which is by far more than enough for a 850w power supply.

Correct, so no worries here.

Though its more like 110VAC but that 170W more or less is not relevant, its enough.

Without too much OC it shouldn't even come close to the 850W anyway.

I was told Corsair PSUs come with a power cord but mine didn't... I know you shouldn't mix modular cables from different PSUs but idk if that also applies for the power cord. So what do i do? Can i use the one from my existing one or do i need to buy a new power cord?

 

My current = AeroCool 800W Strike X 80 Plus Silver EN53754

New PSU = Corsair RMi 850W

 

I won't be plugging the PSU now as some parts of my new rig has not arrived so i can wait.

I believe you mean the cord from the supply to the wall.

If so, you can certainly use any power cord that *fits*, though the higher quality the better, (and safety).

Yes the one you plug onto the PSU and then into the power outlet or in my case, an UPS. Idk about the quality of it. It is some years old. It looks pretty solid and i've never had any PSU related issues so assume its still holding strong... Its a bit dusty on the outside (only the cable not the plug itself) cuz of the area behind the case but it can be easily cleaned.

honestly I wouldn't be worried about it

Yeah, If It worked with your previous supply, don't fret about the new one.

What country are you in? Did you buy the PSU brand new or used? 

 

The plug is pretty standard, so you can replace it with another cable. Should sell them for a few dollars at most electronic stores or places like Amazon, eBay, etc.

Going from my G3 650 to my P2 750, the power cords were rated differently. One said 60 degrees celcius and the new one said 105 degrees celcius.. You should be fine, though if you're not  pushing the PSU to its peak.

Brazil. The RMi is brand new.

I have no idea what the cord is rated at tho its from a 800w psu and the new one is only 50w higher that means anything?... And i'm not quite sure if i'll be pushing my PSU to the limit cuz i might overclock once i deal with some doubts i have.

Oh i just notice this written on the cable "10A 250v" if it helps

 

@Stefan Payne

 

Opinions on this, man?

Input cables are standardized, you need either a C13 or C19 connector on the PSU.

C19 only for 1kW+ PSU, so probably not that. So its possible that the old one can be used.

From what I've seen there are 3x0,75mm² cables and even 3x1,0mm².

If possible get the ones with the bigger cables...

 

 

The Output cables (=modular PSU) is what you have to be careful about.

Cable length is really not an issue the UPS is close to the PSU in the desk so it doesn't need much to reach it.

What i've seen now is, some PSU ask for ?A input current power cord. Like, the AX1600i ask for 15A.

Checking the box, the RMi 850 that i have says "Input Current 12A - 6A" but as i mentioned above

The old power cord is 10A 250v, this might be silly but, won't those missing 2A be an issue?

Only if you need it.

You have an 850W PSU.

WIth 90% Efficiency, that translates to 950W maximum.

 

With 220VAC (real voltage, not claimed) that's around 4,3Amps max,

 

So the 10A max would mean somewhat around 2kW, so you're more than fine.

That's helpful, thanks! But when you say 220VAC you mean the voltage of the electric grid? Cuz if that's so, i live in a part of the country that uses 110-127V not 220V... Will that make any difference on the scheme you just said?

Yes, was assuming that you live in the better parts of the world, electrically not the backwards ones ;)

Ah, yeah, in that case you're close to the rated current...

Depending on the system it could still be fine.

Rampage V Edition 10

64GB RAM Quad

6950X possibly will be oc'd

2080Ti (3 connectors required)

 

Will it still be fine? I assume other stuff like peripherals and case fans are not worth mentioning...

Correct, so no worries here.

Though its more like 110VAC but that 170W more or less is not relevant, its enough.

Without too much OC it shouldn't even come close to the 850W anyway.

The last two letters of the Corsair retail part number represents the power cord enclosed (NA, EU, UK, JP, etc.), but if the part number ends in "WW" then that means no power cord is included.

Brazil uses a mix of 127v and 220v.

What is the mains voltage in Brazil?
In Brazil there is no standard voltage. Most federative units (about 60 per cent of all Brazilian households) use 127 V electricity, but some other – mainly northeastern – states are on 220 V.
