Default Buying Gen-4 Type 4 cables for RM850x White(pre-2018)

Since the 3080/3090 launch i intend to get a card that need 3x8-pin.

I have a RM850x White(pre-2018) that didn't have enough PCI-E cables for that so i need to buy a third one but i can't find the old type of cable anywhere in my country.

But i can find : "Corsair Premium Individually Sleeved PCIe (Single Connector) Cables Type 4 Gen 4 – White"

So the only questions i have :

- Can i use this new cable with my current PSU ? (pre-2018 model)
- Can i use this cable alongside older cables ?

The compatiblity list tells me that it's okay, i think ? But i need to be sure before i blow my motherboard/PSU/GPU or everything in my tower.

Thanks in advance

How is that possible? The RM850x, black and white, came with three PCIe cables with two connectors on each.

But to answer your question: Yes. You're reading the compatibility chart correctly. Your PSU can use either Type 3 or Type 4 PCIe cables.
