Hey, I just got mine Corsair RM550x today and I have a few questions.

1)What is this thing? It has a texture of small rocks.



2)What is this bulge near the end of 24pin cable? Is it the capacitor in the cable? Other cables have similar ones in the end, although they are smaller.



3)Can 24pin cable be twisted like this? The 8pin CPU cable connected to PSU is twisted in similar manner, it won't be any problem for the cables?



4)Can a side case panel have a little bulge? Pretty small one, and the panel is made of steel I assume. The RMx's cables are so freaking stiff.

5)There were 2 sata cables included and both are angled. Are both supposed to be angled?
