Magic II Wire Guage –
I just recently did a great job installing my Magic II. Everything works as it is suppose to.
Anyways, I used 30 AWG wire on all connections. Nothing gives me any trouble, but I'm wondering if this will ever give me problems in the future because I used 30awg on the power connections and the ground. I'm also wondering what problems I may experience if I leave it this way.
I've run the PS2 for hours with no problem so far. No smoke coming out of the system or anything, as I would expect if the wire was too small.
Also, how many amps are running through that ground? If it isn't much, that means the 30AWG is fine basically. Because I mean, how many volts can it really be there. If it's low current, it doesn't matter unless it is way high voltage which I entirely doubt.
