Recommended Posts

Unfortunately I cannot edit my OP from earlier Post. So I've to apologize to open another thread.

 

I've just installed SF750 and RTX3080 and it works fine until now.

 

I own the Corsair Premium PSU Cable Kit and want to use 1 PCIe cable for the third connector of my videocard.

 

I need to know if the SF750 PCIe connectors and the PCIe cables from the 'Corsair Premium PSU Cable Kit' are compatible.

 

If one scrutinizes the pics, the connectors are different.

SF750: First connector third jack is empty.

Cable Kit: 1 jack is empty.

Thank you for your encouragement. I've still no sufficient answer for this simple question.

Why are the connectors which you can see above different and does it have an impact for use?

 

I know the compatibilty guide but do understand the key.

So please tell me if is it safe to use the PCIe cable from the

'Corsair Premium PSU Cable Kit' together with the SF750 PSU.

Correction: I do not understand the key.

it shouldn't matter. type 3 and 4 are completely interchangeable.

one row is 12V contacts, the other is grounds. so all those bottom pins should be 12V. Doesn't matter where the empty socket is, same voltage.

 

Thank you for your support, LeDoyen, but before I insert the connector I want to be rock-solid sure my RTX3080 will not get fried.

LeDoyen is correct. Each rows' four pins are the same. One row is +12V, the other is ground.

 

The "connectors" are the same, if you pay attention to the keying on the plastic overmold.

 

Thank you so much for the first official Corsair statement clearing the issue expressis verbis.

At last I feel safe to use the PCIe cable remorselessly, I hope ...
