Jump your PSU with a paper clip and use a voltmeter to measure the unknown wire(s).

If the pinout on the psu is different that wont help him fully, he needs to share his power supply and other info. Not all powersupplies keep the same pinout on both sides. Granted if thats a psu power (which it looks to be) hes covered on the motherboard side as thats standard.

Best thing for him to do is look up his powersupply from his manufacturer (website) and look for a manual with a pinout or contact them for one. (this is granted the side he forgot is the powersupply side)

However, if the powersupply shows the colors of the wires he can follow the color pattern and be ok, (yellow black) But some PSUs come in all black and even if it wasnt he would still want to check the pin out.

Granted a voltmeter is a great idea, but again all pinouts can be gotten from the PSU maker and its much safer that way.

Otherwise hes golden.

Have to be careful when giving advice to newish sleevers as sometimes this info is not known and could potentially damage their powersupply if they try the same pinout on both sides.

But that is a great site with lots of good info. thumb.gif

Thanks for the replies guys!

I have a Seasonic X-660. This is a photo I took right before sleeving the CPU power cable. I should have made a pin layout but I was going to remove 1 pin at a time to save myself some headache....didn't work.

Well the photo tells you everything you need. The only specific pinout that could get confusing is the 24 pin. The rest just seem to be one of 4 different colors. As long as all of the topmost (where the clip is) pins are your yellow ones, and the black ones are on the bottom, you should be fine.

Finished up my two practice extensions last night. Still have some things to tweak, but definitely getting the hang of it better than the night before.

MDPC VS Para Cord (Para cord was still done with old crap shrink, just wanted to compare before I did the 8 pin extension.)

So you are saying that as long as the yellow ones are in the top (where the clip is) and the black ones are on the bottom, I should be good? I don't need to connect a specific pin on the PSU to a specific pin on the motherboard?

Sorry I am new to this kind of things. On the one hand I am happy it happened to me, because now I get to learn new things but on the other hand, this is very confusing stuff.

I am new as well, but from what I've learned, as long as you put the same color wire that was there in the first place, it doesn't matter if it was that specific wire that was there.

If I'm wrong, then I must have learned something wrong. smile.gif So don't take my word for granite, since I'm new as well. IMO the only wires that are very important to write the pin outs for, and know what goes where, is the main 24 pin connector.

Okay that sounds easy enough. I'll just wait for some more replies and hopefully we both can learn something thumb.gif

Yea, I always make a pin out for most of the wires when I sit down to to an OEM job or have one on hand, but the pic clearly shows yours 12v on top and ground on the bottom, as long as a yellow goes to a yellow and a black goes to a black you will be fine. thumb.gif

To be clear when in doubt double check the pin out provided by the maker.

This rule can be used to clean up pcie cables as well. But some psu makers use their own pin outs (mostly on the 24 pin) but I have seen some crazy pin outs on the other ones as well. tongue.gif
