    Default Corsiar modular cable types

    Hello,

    I get a lot off questions from people who have lost there modular cables and who asks what type fits there model PSU.
    I thought this would be easy to find out since Corsair usually stamps "Type X" on the connectors, but if the cables are lost you cant read of the connector and it doesn't say anything on the PSUs itself from what I can tell.

    I have managed to figure out through Corsairs site that Type 4 is for the RMi, RMx and SF models, but the others doesn't seem as easy to tell.
    It also seems that som types have different generations, Eg. "Type 3 Gen. 2".

    Anyone here have a list of which models uses which Type cables? I'm assuming that most newer models uses a "Type" rather than just individually designed cables?

    Thank you!

    Just a follow up question then, any guess on what the "Generation" think means on some of the cables?
    Like this one who says "Type 3 Generation 2":

    "Generation" is just the revision of the cable sleeve.

    Example: Generation 2 is the nylon sleeve with heatshrink at the connectors. Generation 3 is the paracord without heatshrink.

    There are some weird people in Poland and elsewhere that insist on calling it "Crosshair" as well.

    Fortron probably takes the cake in weird misspellings. I even saw "Farton" once.

    Yes. Speaking of Fortron, somebody on PCLab recently misspelled "FSP Hydro Bronze" as "FSO Hydro Bronze" Gave me the nostalgia feels. I bet if FSO made PSUs they'd be a great OEM.
