    Default Cooler Master Silent Hybrid 24pin question

    Hey guys, I have two basic questions regarding my PSU.
    I am looking to re-do the cables and sleeving of the main 24 pin.
    I have purchased 16AWG wire for this, along with a crimping set.

    My question has to do with pin#13, and #4
    Pin #13 is the 3.3v pin, but it also has the remote sensing wire. What type of wire should I be using for this? From what I have read, it seems to be slightly important that it should be a thinner wire to host a different amperage (correct me if I am wrong).

    Pin#4 on my current psu has 2 (two) red wires going to and from it.
    Pictured here if you can make out. http://imgur.com/dnbAv3g
    These seem to be thinner than the rest of the wires, and I have not seem the double wires used elsewhere.

    My question with #4 would be, can I use a single 16awg wire for this? If not, do I need to find two 18/20 awg wires for this purpose?

    This is my first time posting in these particular forums, I would appreciate it if any correction that is required of me be pointed out.

    Traditionally, the V-Sense wires are 20AWG but using something thicker like 18AWG wouldn't hurt the circuit in any way.

    So you can use 18AWG for Pin's 13 & 4 v-sense connections.

    For pin #4, if your Silent Pro Hybrid has only a single wire than just use a single wire. What you're seeing is most likely another case of a V-Sense wire.

    I am assuming that using 16AWG for everything would be out of the questions then.

    Would it matter if I have extensions onto my 24 pin that does not have V-sense in #4 them?

    It'll drop performance some, not to have the V-Sense connections. On the other hand, it's not that important since most extensions are 6-8"

    As for 16AWG, that's perfectly fine. Like I said before, 18AWG is the standard used but 16AWG can be used as well and in certain cases can improve performance.
