I am thinking of moving the PSU out of my enclosure and went to the tech DIY store to get some wire and they only kind they had was really thin. Its like for LED raspberry pi projects. I wanted to get suitable wire for extensions. does anyone know the gauge or any other pertinent details I need?

Best Answer by JoanTabb:

the Red and Black wires are 16AWG,  if you are planning to make new longer wires it may be a good idea to use 14AWG.

the black and white wires (Power Panic Signal)  are thinner, maybe 22AWG, I have never replaced them. they are not power bearing wires so using a similar thickness wire for a longer run should not be a problem.
