Good to know

From another thread
http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/show...6&postcount=66

I am informed the SilverStone ST1500 Strider connectors are also Nylon 66.

Yes. My goal is to limit the number of extensions I need. If I plug the extension into the PSU and then plug the 6+2/6+2 pigtail into that, I'll reach my required length with only one cable. Otherwise, I'd have to buy two cables for the other end of the pigtail, increasing cost and cable mess.

No case. I'm redesigning my open-air lab workbench. I want as much open space above the motherboard for swapping parts as possible, so my goal is to mount video next to the monitors on a riser. The less cabling to route, the better.

I have the RM 1000w (part number CP-9020062). It been left out for a while and now when I check, I can find only the motherboard (which is 14 pin) and CPU cable. Therefore I need Sata and PCI-e cables to run the system.
I have few other Corsair PSU such as: AX 1200i, AX 1500i, HX 850 platinum, HX 1000w silver.
I looked and tried to connect the Sata and PCI-e cables from those PSU to the RM 1000w and seem fit, even they are type 4 or type 3 cable (only HX 850 Platinum is type 4). But the cables from difference PSU look difference in the way of the allocate the unpopulated pin on the end connected to the PSU.
So my question is can I use those mixed cables from AXi and HXi PSU to run the RM 1000w? as long as the connector fit the PSU then ok or I need to pay attention to the unpopulated pin?

many tks

Type 3 and Type 4 are the same for peripheral and SATA. Type 4 PCIe and EPS12V are the same as Type 3 except for the caps, but they are pin compatible. The only thing that is pin incompatible between Type 3 and 4 is the 24-pin.

so it means I can you the other PSU's sata cable an PIC-e cable for the RM as long they are the type 3, regardless the unpopulated pin slot? and no harm to the PSU or device (like GPU, HDD...)

Correct.

The only cable with different pin-out between Type 3 and Type 4 is the 24-pin... and even then, the pinout is the same, there's just ADDED pins for sense wires.
