  • +12V2 (yellow with green stripe wire): Second video auxiliary power connector or second CPU power connector available on the modular cabling system.
  • +12V3 (solid yellow wire): Motherboard main connector and peripheral power connectors available on the modular cabling system.
  • +12V4 (yellow with black stripe wire): Video card auxiliary power connector coming from inside the unit.

This power distribution is perfect.
