PSU Sleeving/Wiring Question

I just got the materials to sleeve my PSU and for the life of me cannot remember something. I know the position of the RED and YELLOW supply wires is very important but my question is, Is the position of the black wires important or are they interchangeable within the Molex?

I know, stupid question but I'm brain farting right now Lol.

Thanks Guys

AFAIK They are both ground wires. But just to be on the safe side I would mark them anyway.

They're both ground wires, so their position isn't important. Most devices end up connecting the two of them together after the molex socket anyhow.

Yes, both black wires are ground. Ideally, you should keep them oriented correctly to avoid cross-talk. As a practical matter, I've never seen it make a difference. Or, put in a different way; If your system is sensitive enough for it to matter, you've got other problems.
