RM-850x v2 Type 3 or Type 4 cables

I purchased my RM-850x v2 (White) about a year ago. After swapping my Vega 64 to 2 independent PCI-E power cables, I noticed that the PCI-E and CPU power cables, that came with my PSU, are all Type 3.

 

Searching online it seems to me that the RM-850x v2's came with the Type 4 ATX, PCI-E and CPU cables (w/ the in-cable capacitor) and i think type 3 SATA cables. My ATX is a Type 4 but the others are Type 3.

 

Was this a packaging mistake?

From: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/psu-cable-compatibility

 

"The only difference between Type 3 and Type 4 cables is the pinout of the 24-pin ATX cable; all other cables (SATA, PCIe, etc) are the same."

 

Therefore, the only cable that would technically be "Type 4" >>IS<< the 24-pin.

 

The white version of the RMx did not have in-cable caps. Lucky you.
