Corsair sleeved cables for Seasonic X650

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Recently got the Seasonic X650 to replace my failing PSU and it came with the flat black cables. I did some research and saw that the Corsair sleeved cables for the AX series should work with the Seasonic X series. I ordered them and the arrived today but the cables don't seem to be an exact match. The Corsair PCI Express cable has a 12 pin connector that plugs into the PSU but the Seasonic does not have a 12 pin slot for it. All of the other cables seem to be an exact match.

Curious to know if anybody else got the Corsair cables for the Seasonic X series.

It's not gonna work for you since, as you've noticed, the power supply end of the modular cables is not compatible. The pin outs are not the same, the connector is not split for the 24-pin as on the Seasonic (I believe, could just be split differently).

The reason that you'll hear AX series PSU cables can be used with the Seasonic X series is because a few of the AX models were rebrands built by Seasonic for Corsair. If I remember correctly it was the higher wattage models but don't quote me on that.

Long story short, the x650 is not one of the compatible models.

Thanks for clearing that up.
