2010-03-22 08:29:18rev. 9CORRECTdiagram in top left indicating 'at the motherboard' is very close to ads by google, and uses very similar font, this images description is easily mixed with ads msg, would be easier to distinguish separated or near 'at the cable' sectionAPPROVED

2010-04-26 21:45:41rev. 9CORRECTNo errors. Standard ATX pinout. If your PSU differs, it is non standard e.g. Dell P3.APPROVED

2010-05-07 02:58:12rev. 9ERROR FIXEDYou make the statement that "shorting pin 14(ps_on) to gnd only brings on pin 9.Need to signal somehow to bring the total PS on". This is telling me that you haven't figured out a way to test this 20 pin power supply! I've already sent an email telling you how to fix it.APPROVED

2011-12-07 15:11:17rev. 12INCORRECTFrom my experience, Pin9 goes from 5V to 0V, not the opposite, like menttioned in the text, when the PSU is switched on, hence the tag "5VStby" APPROVED
