Cpu 2? Where does it go?

Hey guys,

I have a pc with the specs below:

I7 4770k
8gb ddr 3
2TB hard drive
1000 evga gold psu.

Ok, so I am new to mining, so I took my pc parts out of my case. (I had a technician a few years ago install a new psu). Anyways, for some reason he only hooked up the cpu 2 cable. I don't have the cpu 1 cable. Can I hook up the cpu 2 cable to my psu's cpu 1 port or does it go to the cpu 2 port? Or does it matter?

Thanks!

    One end of the cable goes to the CPU port on the PSU, the other end goes to the CPU 12V power connector on your motherboard.

    The PSU supports a motherboard with 2 CPUs. in your case you have a signle CPU. you can plug your CPU 12V power to either CPU1 or CPU2 on your power supply. Perhaps he chose CPU2 for easier cable routing.
