Some help understanding this Corsair Cable Compatibility Chart

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just want to make sure I'm understanding this chart correctly.

 

https://www.corsair.com/us/en/psu-cable-compatibility

 

If I want an RM model power supply and wanted to pair it with Corsair's own branded colored power supply cables, would I be fine getting all type 4 cables, or do I need a type 3 cable just for the ATX and type 4 for the rest? Or am I just completely off the mark?

Thanks!

Depends on what model RM power supply. Old RM? New RM? RMi? RMx?


Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, Fractal, GSkill (RAM only)

Wall Of Fame (Informative people/People I like): @Glenwing @DrMacintosh @Schnoz @TempestCatto @LogicalDrm @Dan Castellaneta

Ok.  Well, that's RMx. Not RM. So it can only be Type 4, as the chart says.

 

Only RM (with no x and no i) are type 3 or 4 and that only applies to the 24-pin and you can tell the difference by the color of the label.

I get it now, thanks. I got a little too hung up on the year of RM I just disregarded everything else, and the release dates of these things are in the specs, so I can refer to that anyway.

Thanks!
