    Well, I feel stupid actually, :miffed:, I needed to unpin my PSU connector (24 pins)
    The Bequiet Dark power PRO 1200w is a beast of power, and some pins have double twine.
    so, everything went fine, but during this operation, a small brown wire has been cut off from one of the pins, and I didn't notice when it happened, so I find myself with that brown wire pending without knowing on wich pin it belongs to :oldconfused:

    So, if ever one of you owns this particular PSU, and knows where this brown wire goes, I beg: save my ass :lol::wallbash::waah::duh:

    Well, :grin:, I wrote to Bequiet after sales service, a very understanding guy replied, he said he will check on the same model and I am waiting for his answer actually, so I think it will be solved soon... thanks for readers anyway

    You could go through a pin out of the 24 pin connector and cross out all of the wires (assuming the other colours are standard) and see whats left. Wouldn't take long to do!

    @kim Reminds me I still have my cables left from my Be Quiet DPP 650w after that died.

    The unit's gone but if you need any extra sata/pcie power cables the connectors are probably the same on the Be Quiet units (maybe?) if you need them.

    Yep, thanks for the advice @Bloody_Pete ,processing by elimination is most of the time the best method, but I couldn't just wait without searching a smidge on google, I found this :

    So it might be the 3,3 v brown wire showed on this scheme, I had the feeling it broke when I was unpinnig the closest to the edge of the connector, so it could have been either orange or yellow finally, it's orange..:rollingeyes:
    Well, I am thankful to you for proposing your extra cables @adidan , your assumption could have been a brillant idea, but I've got a wide range of connectors, wire, pins, and I am actually waiting for some extra MDPCX Platinum grey sleeving and some goodies I miss, in a way to sleeve all wires to the proper lengh, so I pass, but thank you very much, I apreciate the thought.

    @kim no worries, thought i'd ask as your thread reminded me they are just some of the far too many things i have laying around :)

    Let us know what Be Quiet say. I once contacted them for something (i can't remember what now) and do remember them being very friendly and eager to help.
