    atx cable? which way round

    i have an ATX lead with 20 pin connectors at each end

    one end has leads coming from the 20 pin connector for HD/ Cd floppy

    One end must go to the Mobo the other end to morex Dc Dc psu and 12v regulator

    But which way round?
    ATX 20 pin connctor with leads for HD , Cd floppy from mobo or other way round?

    on one end pins 2 5 6 7 are missing
    end with HD cd floppy leads( coming from pin 5 6 7 10) pin 2 is missing

    im stuck!!

    It should not matter, but I would plug the 20pin only end to the PSU.

    i was thinking the other way round??!! lol

    My logic was that - mobo recieves 12volts then the ATX cable to Dc DC psu distributes the required volatges to the HD floppy etc!

    just 20 pin connector at mobo end and other 20 pin connector with HD CD floppy at PSU end
    like this one

    But if u reckon it will work either way then anyone else got a definitive answer!!

    cheers

    It won't matter, either way the connecters get power.
