Sensing double wire.

post #1 of 10

Is it okay to remove the brown sense wire from my psu entirely? Its double wired to a 3.3v wire

Like wisk said we need the psu.

but most likely and this is with a little assumption you cannot just remove a wire. Each wire is there for a reason and has a purpose so you will be best off splicing the cable cleanly so its no a double wire into the pin but spliced in a hidden spot.

Check my videos on the exact method. thumb.gif

I already removed it shah, well I tried doing my research on sense wires and most of the information I found was vague or not enough. I have already checked your videos before hand I'll probably splice it back when I am finished with my sleeving.

JohnnyGuru's review says the voltage regulation on the 3.3V is poor at load. So based on that, if I were you, I'd make sure that sense wire is connected smile.gif

I'll splice it then. Now I have a great excuse to brush up on my soldering skills.

Practice first on spare wire, and this gives me another excuse to again link my favourite video on youtube:

Do you know of any reliable soldering iron with a small tip at a great price? I am currently looking on amazon and I found some great deals, but for now I'll educate my self with this video. Thanks!

You don't particularly need small tip unless you are doing PCB work. For just joining wires just make sure you get one where the tips are replaceable. The most useful thing when learning soldering is a little tub of rosin soldering flux to help flow, instead of having to rely on the flux inside the core of the solder wire.
