Corsair HX750i and Corsair SF450 - Cables compatible?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi!

My question is the following:
I got two corsair power supplies, the HX750i and the SF450. I want to use the SATA power cable from the HX750i with the SF450 because the SF450 only came with one SATA power cable and i need two.

My question is simple, is the cable compatible? Can i use it safely (without burning all my drives) in the SF450?

Thanks in advance, have a nice day!

because you have both you should check yourself
put the two cable side-by-side and check pin position and polarity and connectors shape

Thanks for your answer.
I checked, and the cables are not the same.
The cables of the SF450 are labeled "type 4" and the cables of the HX750i are labeled "type 3".

I will either order a type 4 cable or i will use molex to sata adapters.

Thanks for helping me out!

What do you mean with "a simple drive" ? I intend to have 6-8Gb NAS drives from either WD or HGST. Can those be considered as "normal" ?

5V 440mA
12V 550mA
really low power requirements => whatever adapter+tiny cables can handle it

if you hook multiple drives and/or strange add-on cards ... they are not "a single" nor a "simple" drive biggrin.gif

p.s. however choose a quality adapter or at least that appear as a quality one wink.gif
