YankeesPwnMets Posted December 31, 2010 Share Posted December 31, 2010 http://www.corsair.com/hx850w.html I never used a Corsair power supply, but I want to get a HX 850 W one day. What's holding me back is that it looks nothing like the Ultra X4 series, and I only used Ultra X4 PSUs in my rig before. I read the manual online, and it doesn't really help. Take a look at the back of the Ultra X4 http://hothardware.com/newsimages/Item11245/ultra-x4.jpg Everything is easy to distinguish, and the manual has a diagram what plug is for which part http://www.techwarelabs.com/wp-content/gallery/ultra-x4-1050-watt-power-supply/u12-40502-call05-im.jpg Very easy for any user with experience to know what cables go where. Taking a look at the backside of the HX 850W, if you ask me, is a lot more confusing. http://blog.corsair.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/HX850_rear.png The plugs aren't easy to distinguish between, and the manual doesn't have a diagram showing which plugs power which parts like with the X4. I have a Fan controller that needs a 4 Pin molex connector, and the X4 I know what cable to use, but the molex on the HX doesn't look a thing like the one on the Ultra X4 (I dont even see a 4 pin plug on the PSU), neither do the SATA power cables do. Can somebody tell me which plugs are for the 4 pin molex, and which plugs are for the PCI E, and SATA as well. I think the manual for this should be improved, and for future Corsair PSUs, I think that the plugs should be easier to identify then it is right now Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
