    The funny part is that GN has an interview with an NVidia engineer that corroborates what Steve and Hilbert said about the power cables.

    Probably he is talking about some load balancing situation where on specialized hardware you need to deliver a certain amount of juice.

    both the sense pins are required on the 4090 to overclock beyond 100%, the corsair rep is a clown.

    One misinformed rep does not speak for Corsair as a whole. I wouldn't say they are mad lol

    Maybe not the whole company. But that rep is really angry, calling Guru3d's and GN's article as "misinformation" and "total bullshit".

    Maybe someone at Corsair is about to have a talk with HR...

    Actually I'd be proud if such a company's rep calls one in the same sentence with GN since they push out a lot more videos than guru3D, which mostly lives off it's written content. 1,7 million vs 6700 subscriptions on YT.
    Well played @Hilbert Hagedoorn :D

    I'm not even getting what the relation with the sanse pin is.
    High wattage appliance, unless if self regulated are usually deployed with open sense for the thermostat.
    The adapter is wired in the way it is.

    Gamers Nexus has a video about it, but idk where the original source is from.

    It looks like @barbacot just copied it from the gamers Nexus video.

    Not interested in GN; just where (and who) the Corsair rep told that.

    In addition, I've tested this on multiple cards in the past week, the power limiter remains locked at 100% the second you go from 4 to 3 PEG connectors. With four ... the power limiter is unlocked.

    Alright, so I just talked with Corsair.

    This was on discord. Corsair has spoken to that representative, and both concluded he was wrong, and they've apologised for the fuzz that has now started. They'll be making a short statement soon about this as clearly, a rep should not talk like that about media like us.

    Guys, it's the web; everybody has opinions. he was wrong, apologizes for that, and for me, that's the end of this story.
