Hi,

I could not be 100% sure if the original cable between PSU HX1000 platinium ( 2021 model) and AX1200i ( 2013 or 2014) can be swapped safely. From compatibility corsair chart all type 3 and type 4 cable except 24 pin seems to be compatible.

- However for Molex/4 pin, the pinout seems different (see picture attached). why original cable between HX1000 and AX1200i can be swapped with different pinout?

- PCIE/sata the pinout are the same so can they be swapped?

Thank you

Missing pins don't mean incompatibility. It just means they're using different pins.

 

This chart is correct and the only difference between Type 3 and Type 4 is the 24-pin: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/psu-cable-compatibility
