Hi,

I have a spare EPS ATX12V 8 pin cable from a Corsair RM850 model 2021 (note: RM non-X model). Photo: View: https://imgur.com/4JeP8Fl

Someone sells a Corsair RM850x (bought in 2021). But the PSU is missing all the EPS ATX12v 8 pin cables. I would like to buy it for another build. I wonder if I can use the spare EPS cable from my Corsair RM850. Checking Corsair PSU cable compatibility chart It seems like it is OK. But I would like to get advice from knowledgeable users to be sure.

Thank you very much for any help.

I wrote to Corsair tech support directly. Here is the answer:

the EPS12V CPU cables are interchangeable between the two PSU's since they both use the same types of cables, the only cable that is not interchangeable is the 24-pin Motherboard cable.

That being said If you are unsure call corsair on Monday they will clear this up right away. Their phone support is good.

I have also checked on eBay for photos of the EPS cable for RM850x. The connector shape looks identical to that of the RM850. Combined with what you said, I think there are great chance this will work. However, I will contact Corsair as you suggested to make 100% sure.

I will update this post later to report the result.
