OCZ 500w and 600w same modular cables?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine has two pcs with the above power supplies he just bought a 5850 so he stuck his gts 250 into his secondary rig and the 5850 into his main rig but the red pci-e cable for his 600w is missing but has the spare one for his 500w and was wondering if he could use the one from his 500w into his 600w since it fits and looks identical.

Also if its not recommended the 5850 did come with two molex to pci-e cables so he can use those but is there any drawback to that?

If they're the same series (e.g. ModXStream) then the cables should be the same.

Well he went ahead and tested them individually on an old 8800gt he had laying around and both times booted up fine says hes about to put the 5850 in.


Edit: He says its working great. Just also thought id mention just because it worked for him doesn't necessarily mean it will work for you.
