So I was looking on CableMod's website and I saw that Corsair's AX1600i PSU was listed under the C-Series RMi / RMx series instead of the C-Series AXi, HXi & RM series (because it's an AXi series PSU, right?)

Here's the page I found it on (scroll to the AX1600i).

So my questions are:

~ Why is it listed under the RMi/RMx series and not under the AXi, HXi & RM series?

~ What's exactly the difference between these two series since they have exactly the same cables?

C-Series RMi / RMx series: https://eustore.cablemod.com/product/cablemod-pro-modmesh-c-series-rmi-rmx-cable-kit/

C-Series AXi, HXi & RM series: https://eustore.cablemod.com/product/cablemod-pro-modmesh-c-series-axi-hxi-rm-cable-kit/

Well thats how it is it seems.

When in doubt you can always send a mail to cablemod and ask. Can't hurt to be 100% sure ;)

Yeah I think that's the best option for now I suppose, but thanks anyway :)

I'd agree that emailing is probably the best way to be sure. But if it helps, Ensourced have them listed the same way (https://www.ensourced.net/corsair-power-supply-cables/). The 1600 is Type 4 while normally the AXi are Type 3.

So, it would seem that Corsair just decided to use Type 4 on the newest AX1600i for some reason. Possibly and simply because it is newer and Type 4 may not have been their cable revision at the time of the other AXi releases.

Yeah I mailed CableMod about it and they could confirm the AX1600i uses Type 4. Only difference was the 24-pin ATX cable, all the other cables should be the same as Type 3.

Just get cable extensions, it’s safer and often cheaper. What do you need 1600 watts for anyways?

NinjaKoala217 submitter 1 point 3 months ago

Why are cable extensions safer (and maybe better?)?

And tbh, I don't need the full 1600 Watts. But I wanted a PSU with 80Plus Titanium with atleast ~1000 Watts. I also wanted to buy it from a brand with a good name (e.g. Corsair). And I also could choose to buy the AX1500i (1500 Watts variant) for ~€415,- or Cooler Master's MasterWatt Maker 1200W for €299,-. But why shouldn't I get a newer PSU which is compared to it's little brother (AX1500i) €80,- cheaper (AX1600i is ~€335,- atm in The Netherlands). And yes, CM's PSU is €36,- cheaper than the AX1600i AND it got less watts so it's closer to the amount I need, but hey: getting more watts than you will need won't do any damage, right? :P

And if you were curious, here's the build I want to build in the end (saving up all the money will take some time :P): https://nl.pcpartpicker.com/list/MFjZCb

Looking at your build it seems that the Cooler Master - COSMOS C700M doesn't support EATX mobo's.

NinjaKoala217 submitter 1 point 3 months ago

Yeah but it should. It's something from PCPP's side which results in that error.

PCPP's site only knows true EATX (12'' x 13'') while the motherboard I want is 12'' x 10.7'', which does fit into the C700M. So it shouldn't be any problem at all. And if it does, then I'll throw the case, the mobo and myself out the window :D
