Hey everyone;

I am building a modest gaming PC this is my first built and there are some things that I can’t find the answers of from google.
Please forgive my lack of basic knowledge.

OK,
I have bought Corsair HX1000i PSU and I have ordered custom sleeved cables specially for that PSU model. The thing that’s troubling me because of my limited understanding is the way cables are made. They are different & wirings patterns are not matching with the cables that came in the PSU box. I don’t know if that’s a big deal or not but I am scared I don’t know what will happen if I the cables are faulty. I have no basic knowledge of electricity and how it works I contacted the seller he said it doesn’t matter which pin is blank and which is not main thing is voltage. But I still don’t want to risk it as I have saved a whole year for this built and I don’t just want to fry the whole system for some cables. Anyways the seller assured me that the worst-case scenario is that if the cables are made wrong the system won't power on.
I don’t have knowledge and resources to check the cables to find out whether they will work or not. So, I am posting pictures for further explanation so you can see what I mean and see if there is anything wrong.

BTW I have tried plugging the cables in Mobo and PSU separately without any power and they plug in just fine without resistance.

I have also tried to get the pin-out diagrams of the PSU specially 24 pin connector and by (following the cable by cable from one end to the other) the way he has managed the cables is different.
 

 

Here are the components I am building my gaming Pc with.

 

Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2 GHz
Corsair HX1000i Watts
Asus ROG Strix 1080 Ti OC
MSI Z270 Gaming M7
G.Skill TridentZ RGB DDR4-3200 MHz - 32GB QC16
Samsung 960 EVO SSD M.2 - 250GB
NZXT Kraken X52

Corsair X460 (Three front SP120s included)
Custom Sleeved Cables
3 x Corsair SP120 (2x Top 1x Back)
NZXT HUE+ with 4x LED RGB Strips

 

Thanks, in Advance.

What brand did you buy for your custom wiring?

Is it cablemod or something?

No its a private company based in England. All I want to know is if its safe to plug them in the system and see if they work without permanently damaging the components. As I have mentioned before they plug in just fine without any resistance but still I am scared. So my question is if the wires are wired incorrectly what will happen if you try to plug them and power on my PC will it damage/fry all the components?

Yes incorrect PSU wiring could easily destroy components - including the PSU. It sounds like your supplier is clueless - I would not use these leads - but if it were absolutely necessary I would electrically test every one before fitting to ensure they were correctly connected.

OK I got it thanks a lot I would return them.
