Never do a PSU mod late at night...

I did a serious "dumb" last night, and now need to know what the consequences are.

I was completing sleeving of my PSU, with the last part being the 12v auxiliary 4-pin connector.  When I took the pins out I made note of which color went where (black vs. yellow) but didn't mark them as to the specific location they came from.  Now I'm not sure if the yellows or blacks are transposed or not.

I know I have both live and ground wires in the right locations, but what will happen if they aren't specifically in the same places (i.e. wire 1 is in 2 and wire 2 is in 1)?

I hope this makes sense - I can't believe I did this... :(

If you're certain the 12v wires and ground wires are in the same spots, it does NOT matter if "12v #1" and "12v #2" and/or "ground #1" and "ground #2" are transposed or not.   It's the SAME ground and the SAME 12v source ==> 2 sets of wires are used to increase the current capacity.

That's what I was hoping but just wasn't 100% sure.  Thanks!!
