All P4 motherboard I thought had the 4 pin connector to power the CPU and the M2 says its compatible with P4 and AMD systems yet it doesn't come with this cable?

    Anywho.. Could I buy the 20 to 24 pin adapter but what about the 4 pin adapter to power the CPU??

    I just had the same question abou the P4 connector. Thanks for asking it! The answer, however is quite dissapointing. As everyone pointed out, it should come with the cable, or say that it needs it in BOLD. The documentation seems lacking at best.

    oops..wrong link..fixing it now..

    Thanks but that's actually not it.. That will use up one of the two molex cables that the M2 does come with.. What we need is 4 pin to 4 pin..

    Can one of you guys who has the 4 pin to 4 pin adapter cable help me out with the polarity on these cables? I'm going to make my own. If you set the two 4 pin plugs next to each other, both with the latch oriented towards the top, do the wires correspond one for one with each other?

    What it looks like to me is that the two wires opposite the latch are the black wires and the two wires closes to the latch are the yellow wires. It also looks like the wires go straight through from one end to the other. Correct?

    Can someone possibly post a picture for us?

    I just realized the M2-ATX did not come with the P4 wire tonight when I finished making my new PC case. I can't beleive I just had to spend almost $12 on this wire. This should defintely have been included even if the M2 cost an extra $2-$3.

    20-->24 pin cables = worthless.

    You dont need a 24 pin.

    Im typing this on a DFI nforce4 motherboard with a 24pin connector plugged into a 20pin PSU with no adaptor. Im also overclocking by 1ghz on an AMD and have been doing so no problems for 6 months.

    Even if you were to buy the adaptor, it wouldnt do diddly because the PSU wont send any power to those extra 4 pins.

    We're actually talking about the 4 pin connector.. Not the 24 pin ATX one.

    yeah.. total let down. I did have high hopes for the M2 after being pleased with the M1. Why state that its compatible when its clearly not in the shipping condition that its sent in !

    unhappy.. prepared to be slated minibox ! The more you sell without this cable the more people your going to upset
