Replacing RM850 with HX1200 using same cables

Hi,

 

I am going to replace my Corsair RM850 (gold) with HX1200 (platinum).

 

My question is, can I just replace the PSU and not replacing the RM850 cables? Can the current cables handle the new PSU? I checked the cable compatibility page but couldn't figure this out.

 

Thanks,

Alexa

I don't know what RM it is, if it's what they refer as 2019 or the other.. either way, the only difference would be the motherboard 24 pin cable.

So you could keep all the cables except this one, just to be safe.

For the others (EPS12, PCIE, SATA, MOLEX), type 3 and type 4 are basically the same.

The RM series (2019) are a more updated PSU but there is an older RM lineup with orange trim

Hi Vegan, My RM850 must be the latest as I purchased it 1 month ago and no orange trim on it.

 

Then you have the updated 2019 RM series

 

The big improvement is with 5V standby which is now way more efficient

 

I have a RM650 which is the basic model for one video card
