homemade adapter works

I followed the exact procedure on the adapter for Quicksilver page since shipping to Canada couldn't be done, and it works. I followed all the steps, but i have a few questions.

1 - the adapter it shows you have a double +3.3V line going to the POK line, is that needed, or can i use a single 3.3V to POK?

2 - I am getting a slight hum/hiss whenever the machine is on. It almost sounds like a feedback somewhere. Is this normal?
I used 2 - 3A 50 PIV diodes and soldered everything together and checked and rechecked everything. I'm wondering if i did something wrong, or maybe misplaced something in the making of the adapter.

Specs of my machine are as follows.

PS - Thermaltake 560W
Quicksilver 2002 model
Sonnet 1.4 Ghz Cpu
1.5 GB ram
3 hard drives, 2 of them SATA
Dual DVD Burner drives
Nvidia 6200 AGP with Zalman cooling fan
5 cooling fans total in the custom case

Just something to add, whenever i watch a video online, the hiss stops. Now i am baffled on to what that is.

Well, i found out the hum/hiss was coming from the 560W power supply. I tried a 450W from Enermax and it seems to be running fine. No hiss or hum whatsoever.

Thought i would give an update.
