Short version of the story is I recapped an Enermax Noisetaker PSU and am transplanting it into a modern EVGA shell to make it modular but I was stupid and didn't take adequate pictures of where all the wires went before removing it's original harness.
Now, between the one picture I have, the single picture I was able to find on Google Images from ~ 2006, and the board itself generally being labeled I have figured out where all the wires go except for 2: the GND sense and +3.3v sense wires. (the EVGA unit also had +12v and +5v sense wires on its modular PCB that I'm reusing but there were no such wires in the Enermax harness).
So my question now is how necessary should these be to use the PSU? I've looked at the 2 pictures I have on hand and can't for the life of me figure out where they were originally soldered to on the Enermax PSU PCB.
Last resort is going to be buying another almost-identical unit off ebay for ~ $40 shipped to tear down and compare as I'm sure they use the same PCB based on the markings on mine but I'd rather not spend that just to see where 2 wires go if possible, especially since I've already got an itch to build the Windows Xp rig my in sig.
What do you guys think?
