Now we just need Seasonic to do the same.

Not trying to steal Corsair's thunder or anything but Bitfenix has had individually sleeved cables for awhile now.


Upgrade kit only really limits the market that Corsair can reach thinking.gif

EDIT: Oh wait, Bitfenix's cables are extensions mostly. Not the same as Corsairs, my bad redface.gif

They should have went w/ high quality sleeving. It looks cheap. Not something I'd expect from Corsair.

$50? Not likely. And it definitely takes more than a few hours. I'd say closer to 12+ to do an entire PSU.

What you see is probably not the final product smile.gif

I live in Denmark: 1. Hardware is more expensive. 2. Can't buy outside Europe due to toll fee. 3. Can't use links to Newegg or that kind. 4. US pricings are NOT the same as DK pricings.

So true. I love their support as well.

I saw this at CES but forgot to write about it. Dammit.

Burning books is like burning bras; after the adrenaline rush of the symbolic moment wears off all you're left with is a pile of ashes and unsupported boobs.

Actually, looking closely at the modular interface, Corsair isn't using a different modular interface compared to the X-650/X-760/X-850 for the AX650/AX750/AX850. Theoretically you could use these cables with the X series, but since Corsair's 1000w and above units aren't Seasonic-based, you probably can't use the HX1050's cables with the Seasonic Platinum X-1000; even if you could use the AX850's cables with them (which is likely), you won't be given enough cables to use all the connectors.
