Generation 2 Cable Kits

When Corsair did a refresh of their power supplies, they also changed some of the pins on their units. As such, new cable kits were required. In addition to the red, white, blue, and black that were already available, Corsair also took this opportunity to add green and metallic graphite to the color options available. These colors make the Corsair cables some of the most diverse available.

 

These kits will fit a wide variety of Corsair's power supplies. These include AX, AXi, HX, TXM and CXM series units. That's a wide selection of nearly 15 units to choose from that you can instantly have individually sleeved cables for in a color of your choosing. Corsair has an MSRP of $79.99 on each kit.

 

There is one caveat to the Generation 2 cable kits... they come without the 24-pin power cables. This is because the AX and AXi power supplies are made by different manufacturers and the 24-pin cable is laid out differently on the power supply.

 

Mixing the two will produce bad things like sparks, fire, and really bad smells - so please make sure you get the correct cable for your needs.

Inside you'll find a bag-o-cables.

It is hard to beat the original black.

Up close and personal.

The addition of the green cables have to be my favorite as they are just so vibrant.

These are just begging to go in a pimped out NVIDIA based computer.

The red is obviously meant for an AMD system.

The quality job on shrink wrapping the ends is prevalent throughout all of Corsair's cables.

Finally we have a set of the white cables.

Anyone itching to build a Sapphire Pure system? These would look great with that.

It is rather odd looking at a Cable Summary without a 24-pin connector on it, but those are coming up next. The good thing about these kits are that if you have a lower wattage kit, you still get all the extra cables so that you can mix and match to get the perfect set of cables that you want, especially with the PCI-E cables.
