PSU Cable Compatibility and Pinouts
Modular power supplies give users the benefit of only plugging in the cables essential to powering their systems. However, not all power supply cables are interchangeable. The component end of the cable is standardized to industry specifications, while the power supply end varies per brand. As a result, it is crucial to use the correct cables. Explore our compatibility tables showcasing which power supplies can use the same cables, and the pinouts associated with them.
Simply match your power supply to the cable type when designing custom PC cables.
All pinouts are being viewed from the back of the connector where the wire is inserted.

EVGA Type 1
Featuring the well-known EVGA Supernova G2, G3, G5, and G+ series power supplies, the type 1 pinout contains some of the most common EVGA power supplies. If you are interested in learning how the cables are wired, or enjoy sleeving your own power supply cables, our pinout diagrams are here to help.
The pinout has three double wires in total, and they all reside on the 24 Pin. The PCI-E, EPS, Sata, and Molex cables contain zero double wires.
Corsair Type 4
Corsair’s type 4 pinout succeeds the type 3 pinout with an updated 24 Pin cable. Now featuring additional sense wires, the 24 Pin will require a 10 Pin and 18 Pin connector. The other cables’ pinouts remain unchanged from the previous generation.
The pinout has five double wires in total. Four double wires are present on the 24 Pin, with the remaining one on the PCI-E cable.

Seasonic Type 1
Seasonic standardized their pinouts a few years back to maximize compatibility across their power supply units. As a result, all models listed below can utilize the same wiring configuration.
ASUS Rog Thor power supplies also share Seasonic cable pinouts. Both the 1200W and 850W are compatible.

Corsair Type 3
With only a 10 Pin and 14 Pin on the PSU end, our Corsair type 3 cables are used for the yellow label RM units, HX gold, and HXi power supplies. This pinout shares the same wiring configuration as the type 4 cables, except for the 24 Pin. For all modern Corsair power supplies, please refer to the type 4 pinout.
The pinout has two double wires in total. One resides on the 24 Pin, and the other is found on the PCI-E cables.

Cooler master Type 1
Cooler Master’s pinout on their website under the MWE 650 Gold is incorrect. The MWE does not have an EVGA 24 Pin layout on the PSU side. Please double check your own connections if you plan to make your own cables. However, our pinout is the correct wiring configuration for the MWE Gold series.
There are five double wires in total, with four on the 24 Pin, and one on the PCI-E cable.

We test and use these pinouts for our own cables. However, we are not responsible for any mistakes made by those creating their own cables from these pinouts. Always create your own pinout with the stock cables beforehand. These pinouts should only be used as a reference when sleeving custom PC cables.
