Coolermaster Silent Pro M1000

I found a 1000W coolermaster PSU for next to nothing on gumtree and it all seems to work however no modular cables.
I've been searching for some time now and cant seem to find much on this PSU.

The modular cables coming from the PSU are 6 pin, and checking the support page from cooler master, the modular cabled are 6 - 6+2 pin for GPUs.

Now some research ive been doing, i understand that some Manufactures use their own cables/config and they are not interchangeable with another brand/generic. (can this be confirmed please)

So my question/help needed, is how do i determine how to obtain cables for this or check or what cables would work with it. I've contacted cooler master but still no reply from them. They also have a parts for sale site but again the cables on there just seem generic?

    I'm sure you've done some gooling and have already taken a look at this topic from the JohnnyGuru forums - http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12965

    Later in the thread, the OP says that he was able to just take some "oddball modular cables" he had and that they worked, although that was after having tested them. That seems to indicate to me that Coolermaster were using a common layout (most 8pin PCI connectors on power supplies have three or four 12v, with four Ground above/below them, with the row of Ground cables being the ones to touch the clip), but the problem then is actually finding the old school 6pin PCI-E and 5pin SATA/Molex connectors. ModDIY appear to have some of the correct cables, but they're super expensive and likely it would cost you less to just buy a brand new power supply.

    Further googling (JohnnyGuru review) reveals the unit to be an FSP OEM, so that's maybe something else to look at, although most FSP power supplies seem to use those horrid proprietary peripheral connectors (the Dagger does use 6 pin connectors for PCI power though).

    An update to the above post, although it may be a long shot - the Coolermaster V series (new enough that they can still be bought in some stores) also uses 6 pin connectors for PCI and also those 5 pin SATA connectors with the notch above the third pin - https://www.moddiy.com/product_images/x/900/cooler-master-v1000-modular-connector-set__38375_zoom.jpg

    I have absolutely no idea if they're compatible, but it's not the worst place to look either.

    If you have a multi-meter you can check to see if the 12v/Ground line are were they should be.
