    The colours are standard.

    That's the pinout for a 20pin.

    You should find the pinout is exactly the same, except the 24pin one has 4 more wires. Thsi was teh case with my cwt550w psu, I pulled all the wires out of the connector except the last four,and pushed them into an 20pin connector.

    If what SilentDeath says is true, then you could probably cut away the last 4 pin part of the block with a stanley knife, leaving it intact, just in case you need it in the future...
