Corsair Premium Individual Sleeved PSU Cable Kit Review

Corsair Premium Individually Sleeved PSU Cable Kit




In this image, we start off with the basics. On the left is one of the EPS12V 4+4-pin leads which matches the second one on the right. Between them is the 24-pin cable, which at one end is a 6-pin and 18-pin connection, while at the other is the typical 20+4 connection we are used to seeing on just about any PSU cable.





In this image, we decided to put all of the PCIe cables together. On the left is the pair of single PCIe power connection cables, and both use a single 6+2 –pin connection at one end, and 8-pin connections to go into the PSU. The pair on the right is capable of powering two PCIe power connection with one cable. These both have a pair of 6+2-pin connections for the video card but stem from a single 8-pin connection each, to be connected to the PSU.




The last group of wires is for powering everything else in the system. On the left, we see a pair of cables which start with a 6-pin connection at the PSU and extend with four Molex connections evenly spaced along the length of the cables. To the right, we see much of the same design, starting with a 6-pin connection for the PSU, but this time there are four SATA connections evenly spaced on each cable.




Inside of a small bag which you will find mingling with the cables, Corsair also sends a set of nine combs to be used to keep the individually sleeved cables evenly spaced and looking as good as they possibly can inside of the chassis. At the left is the 24-pin comb with a few deeper grooves for the dual wired portions of the 24-pin cable. The rest of the combs can be used for the EPS12V 4+4-pin cables, the 6+2-pin PCIe cables, and they can even be used to clean up the appearance of the SATA and Molex cables too.




At the bottom of the box, under all of the cables and combs, you will find this velvet bag. This is intended to offer a place to keep the extra cables which you may not use, it has a drawstring top, and has the Corsair name and logo printed in white on the front of it.




Since these cable kits are made to work with specific power supplies, Corsair has also sent us the PSU to connect the Premium PSU Cable Kit to it. Since we do not need a ton of power to push our test system, we have been given the RM 750x, 750 Watt, 80 Plus Gold certified PSU with a ten-year warranty to aid in the rest of the review.
