I'm going to be sleeving my psu cables and I was wondering if anything would happen if the black ground wires were switched on the molex. Would it stuff my psu? Thanks.

It shouldn't, but you might find it an unecessary risk. Just so you know, all the black DC ground wires coming into a PSU almost always meet at one solder point.

Why do you feel you need to do it?

I don't think he necesarily wants to do it....it would probably be just in case he accidentally switched them around during the rewiring of the molexes...but a good way to make sure you get all wires back where they need to be (very helpful for the 20-pin atx connector) is to put some tape around it, and make a mark or 2 or something so you can tell which designated wire goes back into its right spot.

Get what I mean?
