    It's Corsair's. That's why originally it was only on Corsair PSUs.

    It's Corsair's but not patented, so everyone who likes it can use it. Since it's using popular types of connectors/sockets only the parts are totally easy to source. Also it's well protected against mixing up connectors. Good work, Jon!

    Since the connectors themselves are standard.... no.


    but remember: Ultra did patent the CONCEPT of modular connectivity on the DC outputs and Super Flower did patent their funky 3x3 connector. Because they were the first ones to use it.

    But no, you can't patent a pin-out.
