Default Connecting MB to PSU - with CableMod Pack?

UPDATED, I had some errors previously, in my description!
Hi! Have a RM850 that I want to connect to my MB. I also bought a Corsair Cablemod pack(CableMod PRO ModMesh), to replace the cables that came with the PSU. So ALL Corsair. The Cablemod pack(="CM" below) says it compatible with the "RM"-series of PSU.
Now to my question. The MB is no problem.But when i try to connect the CM-cable to the PSU, it only have ONE 14 pin connector + ONE 10 pin, on the "PSU-side". The PSU have a 18-pin connector, and one 10-pin (close).
The ONLY way to connect the CM-side, with 14 pins, is to connect it so that the PSU have 2 empty pins on each side of the CM-cable connector.....thus only using the "middle connectors of these 18 connectors...?? (Due to the "hook" on the upper side of the 14 pin-connector, it will ONLY fit in these 14 middle connectors...? The four connectors on the "edges" will not be used...??? What is wrong? Why is there only 14 connectors on the (Corsair) CM-kit??
Anybody knows what to do?
Best Regards from Sweden

OK, I thought that Cablemod was a Corsair-product, but it wasn't, it turned out.
So the connector WAS wrong. Bought new cables, problem solved.

"Cablemod for Corsair" had me fooled....

need to be careful with cables but after some early issues the type 3 and 4 are now standard across the line
