first off...is it better to do it from the clip, splicing in... or from the bottom of the board? for some reason, the bottom of the board idea just seems like itd make ur psu sit sloppily..

secondly..exactly which wires is it?

if i plan to run a bunch of fans off of 12v... then i can just use the yellow wire, and any black wire for ground?



if its not a good idea to splice the wires, which points on the board would be good for wat im looking for?

Solder to the bottom of the PSU, thats what i did, it's alot cleaner wink.gif

Just dont use uber thick wire or put a huge blob of solder on it and it will sit perfect.

For the location of the point you want to solder to, just follow the yellow wire laugh.gif

Yeah, any black wire for ground.

thanx. just curious, is there a reason why there are multiple wires for certain soures. why 8 ground wires, and 8 wires of various voltage...why not just the 5 different kinds of voltage, and then 5 ground wires...or one ground wire?
