    Default Corsair cable compatibility and pinouts

    Here's a matrix I made that has all of the Corsair modular PSU cable compatibilities and pinouts.





    Please be kind and not "steal" this. You may link to it. You may even copy it if you could be so kind as to give credit, but do not deep link the images (we'll know if you do).

    What about the HX 80PLUS Silver? Same as the HX 80PLUS Gold?

    Some HX Golds also have a modular EPS cable, those are missing here. Is it a Type 3 cable?

    Nice, but aren't the Type 3 and Type 4 cables compatible to each PSU, with the exception of the main ATX connector?

    Yes.

    Type 3 and Type 4 pinout is the same on the PCIe and EPS12V.

    No difference at all. But if you actually look at the table I posted in the OP, you'll see that I only put "Type 3 SATA/PATA" and didn't even list a "Type 4 SATA/PATA". So did you not see the table in the OP or are you just trolling?

    I was looking at an HX650W Professional Series PSU and my 6-pin PCIe connectors are reversed from your diagram for the original. On the DVM, I am seeing the ground pins next to the latch and +12V opposite. Is this one different from the one shown?

    Thanks!

    Hmm... Is it the same as what I have for "HX Gold" which is "Type 3"?

    Do you have six or eight pins on the PSU for the PCIe cables? Should be 6-pin.

    We're talking about the pin out that goes into the PSU. Not the pinout of the PCIe connector that goes into the graphics card. Because a PCIe connector DOES have the opposite pinout than what goes into the PSU. It's not a straight through cable. It crosses the wires from one side to the other.

    This PSU has 5 5-pin connectors and 2 6-pin connectors. The 5 pin is powering 3 SATA drives right now.

    I actually don't have any other cables for this PSU, which is why I was trying to sort it out. It is a rev 3BW and I think I built it with my brother in ~2009. I took my measurements directly at the PSU (no cable attached).

    I realized I was going down a bad path when I was looking at my Type 3 SATA cable thinking I could use it for more drives! Silly me to think the modular cables would be compatible!
