24 pin connector question...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just received my new power supply and I noticed something about the 24 pin connector. The pin 5th from the left has no wires going to it and the 4th pin from the left has a small red and a bigger red going to it. Is this a mistake? Or is it all gravy and I can plug everything in...

That's the -5V pin, removed from the ATX12V spec in 2003.

I'd be more worried if your PSU did have the pin.

The one with two red wires is one of the +5V pins. One wire is for carrying current, the other is +5V sense, which is nice to see since you usually only see +3.3V sense.


What model is this?
