They are different, as Corsair George already said.

Again, there are reasons (hardware wise) as to why this CPU is the best on the market, regardless of it's current output.
If you have Quad-SLI, there are solutions available that Corsair has made readily available...For FREE.
Ultimately, the answer is very simple...If you can't use the PSU to it's fullest extent, don't buy it.
BTW, you'll come to find that a tremendous amount of people actually own this PSU that ONLY Sli...Anything above SLI right now, is a niche market and thus, 1%...

Not in my case, if i want a FREE "Y" style cable i have to buy an AX1200i.....how daft is that?

Apparantly not, according to George the AX1200 is made completely differently to the rest of the product line.

Its a completely different PSU, in terms of pins and whatnot. Its not "daft". Its on you for not choosing the "i" model, though you couldnt have known better. Just get a molex adaptor, or arent there PCI 6+2 to 2x 6+2 adaptors? (Y cable that doesnt plug into the PSU directly)

George already said in this thread that the ax1200 is most likely not getting y splitters. This issue was not solved quickly as you claim, Corsair didn't listen to complaints for 2 years, then even went ahead and released another model with the same issue as before. Yes, now they do finally acknowledge it, while still leaving behind all the ax1200 owners. And also, this psu is not competing with the x-1250 or hcp1200... Those psus were released qutie a while ago and are $100 cheaper, they were ax1200 competitors, wait for the platinum versions before asserting dominance rolleyes.gif

There's no reason for him to call Corsair when the guy who has the juice to make things happen is right here fielding comments and complaints. He already stated that the AX1200 would not likely be getting this Y-cable.

@General121: The cpu analogy doesn't fit. It's about support in this case, from a company that's usually spot on in that area (they have been for me so far) for a premium product. It's one thing to make that slip initially, but to make the new version the same way? Can't supply the cable for the old (not that old) model at all? I get moving toward using one standard connector because that makes sense, but unless a product is discontinued, they should support it with cables and such. It's not entitlement, it falls under product support and it should be expected.

However, anything is possible, and I'll keep it in mind that it has been requested. I know this sounds bad, but I'm in charge of ever case, power supply, CPU cooler, fan, and all the Corsair Link products that come out of Corsair. I'm the PM for all of those. As you can imagine I get kind of swamped. And sometimes, little things I'd like to do just don't justify the time spent. I also have an 18 month old daughter and another kid on the way, so at some point I like to go home and play with her an hour or two before she goes to bed.

Then at night I get back on these forums and read more posts and comments.

I can't always go back and make products better retroactively, but I can incorporate a lot of things into newer products. A lot of you guys' opinions are already on my roadmap.

Just keep in mind my roadmap is about 3 years long.

TLDNR: The guy in charge of EVERY product said it probably won't be done. Why would calling them once change that? If you seriously think your one phonecall carries enough weight to move a proverbial mountain like that, then I bet you have another think coming.

Good going corsair, now make smaller wattage ones!

I'm assuming you plug two Y-cables into the last 2 PCIe 8-pin slots and split them between your GPU and mobo connectors.
Not sure how long the Y-cables are and if you'll need an extender or not.

Good going corsair, now make smaller wattage ones!

Why would customers requesting a product effect anything? Ohhhh, that's right, we're the ones buying the product...I wonder how a ton of people calling them would change that...I really do...Can anyone else figure this out? God, that's such a hard question...How do customers drive the product?!?!

I also wonder how hard it is to actually make a Y of your own...Or replace the adapter with an AX1200 header...Oh, that's right, silly me, it really isn't.

I apologize, I'm a "plank" and I forgot that you speak for Corsair and have all of the answers.

Just because I say something WILL be done by my company, doesn't always mean I know best or actually control what others are capable of.
