I have an XFX Pro Series 850w Black Edition as seen here:

I know that my PSU's OEM is Seasonic, and I believe that this is Seasonic version of that supply is the Platinum Series 860w unit found here(the jacks/switches are identical):

I am interested in buying an extra set of cables and sleeving them, but I would like to know if the modular power cables are safely interchangeable. I have even seen single sleeved cables for these supplies, and was curious if they correspond with my PSU. See here:

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

The XFX Pro Series Black Edition 850W (P1-850B-BEFX) is based on the Seasonic X-Series 850W (SS-850KM3) not the Platinum Series.

The Platinum Series PCI-E connectors on the PSU modular interface panel are 12-pin connectors.

The XFX Pro Series Black Edition 850W (P1-850B-BEFX) uses 8-pin connectors on its PCI-E modular interface panel and matches exactly what the Seasonic X-Series 850W (SS-850KM3) uses.
