PSU 24-pin double orange wire placement?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I sleeved all of the wires for my 24-pin connector, and as I'm putting them back in to the slots, I realized that one of my orange wires is doubled. It has a normal wire with a skinny wire attached.

I'm just wondering, does it make a difference which pin gets the double orange wire, or can any of the orange designated pins get that one? confused.gif

I searched through the PSU Sleeving Guide, but couldn't find anything about if the double wires need to be placed back in to a specific pin slot.

There's nothing about it in any of the books I have.

If it helps, the PSU is a Silverstone Strider 750w.

Thank you.

Yeah, that's the 3.3V with I think an extra wire attached for extra amperage. They go into one pin slot.

Okay. But does it matter which one it goes in to? Or can it go in to any slot that is for an orange wire?

It is a remote sense wire to make up for voltage drop in the wires.
It can go to any of the orange wires on the main 20 or 24 pin motherboard connector.
It should be in the same terminal as the larger orange wire.
On the link below near the bottom of the page it shows the specified connector.
