Default Voltage of a 4pin molex cable

Hey all, I've been trying to understand, but all of the numbers are kind of confusing me. I want to know what the voltage of 1 4 pin molex connector of the corsair 1000hx is.

Black is ground, red is 5v, and yellow is 12v, but don't quote me.

Molex connector - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And if you pair the 12V with the 5V you get a difference of potential of 7V (easy undervolt mod for fans).

The 2 center wires are ground. 5V on one side, 12V on the other. Check the pics on Wikipedia, it should be apparent.
