My monitor and Corsair 750 PSU have the same power cord connectors from the wall. I mixed them up when rearranging. Can someone tell me what their Corsair PSU power cord says? Then I can compare it to mine and see which goes to which.

This is an easy question but I need some help.


Thanks

Use the one with the thickest wire gauge for the PSU since it has to handle more power than a monitor would draw from the wall outlet.

If both cables have the same wire gauge then it doesn't even matter.

there may be a slight difference. in the fuse. if the monitor is a lcd then it may only have a 5A fuse in it. the cpu should have a 13A in the uk...
so turn the plug over and see what fuse is in which lead.
