Default Change the resistor value in the PS scheme

Just want to know how much is important to use 4 of 0.47 ohm 3W in the power supply.
I have 5 resistor of 1 ohm 5W, its ok to put them??

If you have (5) resistors 1.0ohm 5W, per rail, for a total of 10 in the PSU, that will work very well.

With load, you should see about one sixth of
a volt drop across the resistors per amp load.
What you are seeing now seems fine.
