I've bought this kit for my HX1000i

and only 24pin ATX cable does not fit ;)

Mine is 14+10pin, while Gen 4 kit has 18+10pin.

 

Should I buy somewhere 24pin Type 4 Gen 3 (?) cable?

 

You're getting "type" and "gen" confused.

 

"Gen", as in "generation" is just the type of cable sleeve.

 

HXi uses a "Type 3" 24-pin cable.

 

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

 

That means it has a 14+10 at the PSU as opposed to 18+10.

Thanks for explanation, now I know what's the difference between Gen and Type.

 

I was looking at compatibility table more than once, but... just focused on "HX (PLATINUM)" column - cause' my HX1000i is also platinum.

Now it's clear that column corresponding to my PSU is "ALL HXi".

 

Thank you for your clearance!
