Default SSE resistor R3 higher wattage

Ok I have not even stated assembly yet and found I made an error. For R3 I have a 10k 3W resistor, same as R14 and R24 instead of a 1W resistor. Any issue with using a 3W in R3 besides some additional bending to get it to fit? Just want to make sure I am not upping the wattage on a resistor designed to be a weak link in case something goes wrong.

No problem. If you can make it fit, it will work.

Luckily there looks to be plenty of room around R3 so all should be good. Time to warm up the soldering iron. Thanks George.
