More about wires
  1. What do you mean "3 more wires"? Do you mean 3 more sets of connectors? If so thats not a problem, the number of strings of a connectors a PSU has depends on its size, bigger ones have more than smaller ones. If you are instead referring to a specific connector having more wires than the old one did can you take a picture of it for us?

    The 24 pin connector has 3 more wires.
  3. What power supply do you have? The wires for the 24 pin main connector are pretty standard but your new one may have a +12V sense or something else added on.
