    Exactly - I searched for it but did not found the source...

    A SS was better in my opinion than the whole video.




    Sorry for the late reply - I was "in the market" trying to see if I can buy a 4090 FE from a guy....

    Glad it was resolved - the language was "crude" and I had a better opinion about Corsair which PSU's I love and use since they were first launched (also some of their cases) and when needed their support was helpful and nice.

    Wow, I'm really shocked that came from jonnyGURU. I know he works for Corsair now, but he used to be the go to guy for anything power supply review related and always seemed to know his stuff. He's even did interviews in the past with Steve of GN and always seemed very knowledgeable. He's not the guy I expected to get this wrong and I definitely didn't expect the crude words he used to describe the correct information.

    EDIT: It sounds like he was incorrectly informed by nVidia themselves who didn't even send them a card or the adapter to use for making their own PSU cables. nVidia is doing a great job pissing off companies lately.

    This is all a bit of a nothing burger

    jonnyGuru was talking about physical cables from the psu to a graphics card e.g. is a psu capable of running 600w with 2 or 3 cables etc
    GN was talking about the supplied Nvidia 4 connector adaptor

    GN arent being clear enough
    and jonnyGuru wasnt clear enough in what he was pointing out

    Both are right and both are wrong..

    GN are being a bit pedantic and Corsair may have apologized but the fact is what jg said was correct the sense pins are just that the graphics card looks for ground on said pins, its not a communication link
    Nvidia stated there's an ic in the adaptor but what they didnt say is all that ic does is it looks for how many cables are connected then pulls one or both sense pins to ground to inform the card 450w or 600w

    I thought what GN and Guru3D both said was pretty clear, they were talking about the nVidia adapter. The problem it seems is nVidia didn't even send Corsair one of the adapters and gave them the wrong specs of said adapter. It seems like most board partners and PSU companies were under the impression from nVidia that any adapter was a "dumb" adapter and did not have any sort of IC in them.

    Thanks for great review....
    There are already many very, very detailed teardown reviews (e.g. tecpwrup), so why bothering...?

    Oh wow so Nvidia kinda knock jonnyGuru down a peg with their ingenuity. JonnyGuru simply didn't expect the card to know whether 3 or 4 connectors are connected.

    I guess the smarter and more experienced someone is, the more humility they should conduct themselves LOL

    Dunno i think GN was perfectly clear in their video that with 3 cables you can set it to 100% and the card will work but if you want to overclock and go beyond 100% you need a 4th cable.

    A professional approach would have been to contact GN and Hilbert directly....not make an idiotic post on Discord.....
