Can I mix modular cables between Corsair PSUs?

I have this incredible Corsair AX1600i

I want to buy a new pre-made PC, and the max PSU i can choose there is an RM1000x one.
Figured I'd buy this one and just swap the PSU itself when I get the computer, leaving the RM1000x cables in there, and feed them with my 1600i.

Would this be fine? I guess modular PSUs are made to be like that, modular?

While modular cables are made to be like that, that doesn't mean that you can swap PSU's willy-nilly. The connection to the PSU isn't standardized and sometimes even PSUs from the same manufacturer and the same line won't be compatible with each other.

Corsair publishes a PSU cable reference : https://www.corsair.com/us/en/psu-cable-compatibility.

So ... in your case, it will work as both are Type 4 cables.

Thanks!

How do we know mine is Type 4? It says on the description (EXCLUDES AX1600I)

for PCIE it doesn't matter.

the only difference between the two types is the 24 pin cable.

PCIe, EPS12v , SATA, Molex are identical between type 3 and 4.

In the chart you'll notice there isn't even a PATA/SATA type 4 actually 😛
