If you look at the attached image, of the pin layout, that shows how the stock cable is. It has some criss-crossing wires, which seems unnecessary. The top top row, and pin #4, on both PSU and PCI side, are ground wires. pin numbers 1, 2, 3 are +12v. So, when making new cables, the pin to pin layout can be changed, to be a "1:1" connection.
My question, is if the capacitor can be moved/attached to a different set of wires, than it already is, at stock. Is the PSU, or the GPU expecting that capacitor on 1 specific pin configuration? I know that some of the ground wires serve as 'sensors' for the PSU, and possibly for the GPU. If that is the case, and the capacitor is meant to be connected to those pins, I imagine moving it off of them would cause an issue.
I hope that helps clarify my question? Here's a photo of the PCI-E end connection, to the GPU, for clarification of the position of the capacitor.
