Get a 20-to-24 pin ATX adapter.
ok, so i just bought a new mobo and proc, its a new core 2 dou setup
only problem i have is that this mobo is 24 pin, my psu is 20 pin
any ideas on what to do?
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?
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 :-/
