Default RM850 replacement

Hi everyone,

My RM850 died and I want to get another modular corsair PSU that the cables are compatible so I can just swap the PSU without having to re-route all the cables.

Can anyone tell me which of the new modular PSU's are compatible and use the same cables?

thank you

The old RM850 used Type 3 cables so the only PSU's you could swap it with and keep the cables would be the HXi and AXi(excluding the AX1600i) PSU's.

Thank you mate.

OMG the HX850i is around 200 euro why so expensive?

I don't know where you are looking for it but on the Corsair website it has it listed as 199.90 Euro.

Ultimately you are paying for the higher 80 Plus efficiency rating, better components, and the ability to monitor it with iCUE. There are always the options of the less expensive RMi and RMx series but they use the Type 4 cables instead of the Type 3.
