    Power cable

    Can someone quickly check what manufacturer of AC power cord Corsair PSUs use? I got them mixed up and theyre rated differently... d'oh. Google doesnt seem to have the answers...

    I have two I-Sheng cables and a Linetek

    Cheers

    You should be fine with either of those cables. As Corsair PSUs use the normal kettle cable. It really doesn't matter what cable use.

    Re: Power cable

    As the previous poster says, Corsair use the standard IEC connectors (strictly - IEC C15). I don't know what wattage Corsair psu you are using, but a 650 watt PSU running on UK mains voltage of 230V (nominal) will require a cable rated at at around 5 Amps (in the US that will need to be at around 10 Amps) - using rough and ready calculations. The IEC connector itself is rated at 10 amps and if it is moulded onto the cable, the cable will also be rated at at least that current. So using any cable that has that connector form factor will be OK.
