    Default Can one interchange PCI-e cables between two different Corsair power supplies?

    OK....have two different Corsair power supplies, a 620HX and an 850HX.

    I seem to have misplaced the extra PCI-e connector cable that belongs to the 620. I have a pair of extra PCI-e connector cables from my 850HX.

    Can you use the 850HX cables on the 620HX? Are they wired the same so using them won't blow the video card up?

    Thanks!

    Don't know about the pinout, may not be the same due to 2 different oem's, but the 850 uses an 8 pin connector at the psu, the 620 a 6 pin.

    Different models from different OEMs, the cables will differ on pinouts and maybe even plug type.
    This is one of the reasons for moving to a single OEM for a model range, so they only have to make one sort of cables.
