ok so, either they shipped you the wrong one (ive heard of it once) or it could be that the cable connector has a rough edge or something somewhere where it is catching up.

It sounds an aweful lot like you bought cables for the RM, when you have the RMx.

The RM uses different cables than the RMx and RMi. The 24 pin is different, the others are the same.

Which PSU do you have and what model number cables did you order from CableMod? Do you have a link to the cables you ordered?

The Corsair RM and RMx are different power supplies and use different cables. The RM uses the same cables as the AXi and HXi, while the RMx uses the same cables as the RMi. As @seon123 mentioned it's likely that you ordered cables for the wrong unit and they are incompatible.

You can contact @CableMod for customer support or contact the CableMods support team on their website. https://cablemod.com/support/ I'm not sure what their policy is, but if you talk to them they may allow you to return the cables you ordered and exchange them for the compatible kit.

That means you bought the wrong cable, or that the wrong cable got shipped to you. The type 4 on the RMx/i added Vsense wires, requiring more pins. So you got the Type 3 cables for the RM.

Don't try powering the system on with the cable installed like that. Should go without saying, but you'd be surprised :D

 

Use the original Corsair cables while you sort out replacing the cables with Cablemod.

Actually, the PSU will still work fine without the sense pins.  I've put Type 3 cables in Type 4 PSUs all the time.  You just don't get the lock pin securing the cable to the PSU.

Looks like it's sticking out a few mm from the connector due to the locking pin, won't that potentially cause issues if it's not properly inserted?

He should have the original Corsair cables that came with the unit so really no reason to use the cablemod cable until it's replaced...

You're not making sense.

I haven't run into that issue myself.  I can usually get the cable all the way in.

 

But yeah... if he has the original cable still, there's no reason he shouldn't use it until he gets the correct cable from Cablemod.

 

In my case, I had an over-abundance of Type 3 cables and needed to do builds with Type 4 PSUs, so I just made do with what I had.

@Djesur Feim it does appear you bought the wrong kit, email Support@CableMod.com though and we can get you the correct 24-pin ATX cable. That's the only one that actually needs replaced.
