power supply tester (FCPU brand)

Hi all, I have the frozen cpu ps tester.

I have custom sleeved my cables, my 24 pin cable I have all lights green EXCEPT the -5v led.
This is a Seasonic 1k Platinum psu.

Also does the 24 pin need to be plugged into the psu (10+18) for the EPS 8 pin to read?

In a hotel for work reasons right now and hoping to get some of my wiring done in the process.

Is there a white wire on pin 20 of the 24-pin ATX connector, near the locking tab and next to a red +5V wire on one side and maybe 3 black ground wires on the other side? That would the -5V rail, but with most modern power supplies that space may be empty because nothing needs -5V from the power supply any more. I think the last time anything needed -5V or -12V was over 20 years ago, maybe a sound card.

The 8-pin connector doesn't read anything because it's just a source of +12V power for the CPU because the ATX connector specification is inadequate.

Why did you buy a power supply tester instead of a multimeter (Harbor Freight free w/coupon & any purchase), a paperclip, and maybe some 10 watt load resistors? They're cheaper and more versatile.
