    Get a 20-to-24 pin ATX adapter.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    ok, so here was my thought, i already have a psu with a 24 pin connector, well actually its a 20 + 4, since that psu does not work i was thinking maybe i could cut off the 4 pin and splice it into the 20 pin?

    You certainly could.
    There are pinout diagrams for the 20-to-24 pin adapters out there to use.
    Break out the soldering iron & the multimeter and have at it!

    well each cable is color coated, like orange 3.3v and red 5 yel 12 black grnd... the last 4 pins are only

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATX i was looking at this and tried it....

    to splice them in, i got it in and such but then i go to hook it up, i plug everything in go to turn on, and i get 5 blinks on my light on the ATX

    5 blinks = Power Supply Overload or Fault (ACC must go low to clear a fault)

    but i checked out all my stuff should be about 211watts :-/

    What about the power draw on each individual rail?
