    M2-ATX Question - 24 Pin Motherboard w/ 4 PIN CPU

    I have a BIOSTAR GEFORCE 6100-M7 Socket 754 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard.



    It has a 24 Pin motherboard connector and also the 4 pin connector to power the CPU. The M2-ATX has the standard 20 pin connection and comes with no 4 pin connector. 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??

    this doesnt help your 24 pin problem but the M2-ATX does have the 4 pin connector, I have one next to me right now. The M1-ATX doesnt.

    This blows.. They should either include both a 20 to 24 pin adapter and the 4 pin adapter and charge a few extra dollars or just include them for free.. Now I have to order this freaking cable from a different supplier and wait 5-7 days before I can use this PSU.. Total crap..

    Exactly.. They market it as "AMD / P4" compatible but you have to buy cables to make it compatible seperately?? Not to mention they don't have any in stock..

    This is sweet!
