    Default Cooler Master Silent Pro cables compatible with Cooler Master V850 ?

    So, I bought a used Cooler Master V850. But some of the PCI-e cables, SATA cables and Peripheral cables are from the Silent Pro series.

    I don't want to blow up any of my hardware, so are these cables compatible with each other ?

    Thanks.

    Doubt it. Not even the V850 has the same pinout as VS550, 650 and 750.

    Thanks. I also asked Cooler Master support (the more information, the better) and they actually said

    Yes these modular cables from the Silent Pro series are compatible with the V850.


    I assume they would know about their own products, and they are safe to use, although I'm still a little bit nervous.

    a long long long time ago, the cables were color coded.

    In those olden days all you needed to do was to look at the cables...
    But sadly those days are over....

    It makes you wish that manufacturers got together and declared that their pin-ins would be the same, and have identical but incompatible sockets -- so you could not plug the cables into incorrect sockets.

    The pin-outs are already identical -- at the video cards, at the motherboards, at Molex 4-line connectors, at USB. So, if they can use identical pin-outs, why are pin-ins so difficult? Jonny, you can speak up here. Seasonic Rep, chime in.

    Agreed, I hate this nonsense of "invisible" or black cables...

    Eh, devils advocate here. Black cables look real nice.

    Colored cables are only for the 0.01% who actually want to figure out pinouts of the psu and stuff like that. I bet 99.99% of people don't care about that, and care more about the looks.

    I disagree. I don't see any improvement in aesthics. I can care more about LEDs or painting than this.

    Also, it's a violation of the specs and only increases costs and potential issues with the assembly.

    Since you mentioned Seasonic: They are one of the worst in terms of those 8pin connectors.
    They seem to use the 'Standard' EPS12V pinout but use PCIe connectors *ARGH*
    W H Y? Just WHY?

    But the best thing would be those 1x5pin connectors, S-ATA Style and the rest according to Standard...

    The 8pin EPS connectors seem to be the standard for many PSU for PCIe and EPS connectors already, so that should be fine...

    The only thing left are peripherial connectors and the ATX connector...
