    I'm looking to buy an Asus A8N-VM CSM Micro ATX motherboard which has a 24 pin power adapter. Every Micro ATX case that comes with a PSU seems to only have a 20 pin power adapter.

    Can anyone recommend me a Micro ATX case which comes with a 24 pin PSU or failing that a case and a seperate 24 Pin PSU which would fit into it?

    Thanks

    Aspire X-Qpack. The PSU is pretty loud though, and so is the 12cm exhaust fan.

    I have that motherboard, I would fit the blue Zalman cooler onto the southbridge. I use a Seasonic S12, it's much quieter than the Qpack PSU. In a Silverstone TJ-08. The Seasonic fits into the Qpack also.

    Thanks for the info Squiffy. I just checked with a webnote about the Aspire X-Qpack that OC's have but i was informed it does not have a 24 pin PSU.

    I think i'll have to get the adapter or of course a normal case/motheboard

    Another site states it's 24 pin. Anyway a mate has one plugged into a Gigabyte MATX Nforce 4, and that's ok. Can't remember the model number, OC did used to stock it though.. edit it's the GA-K8NMF-9

    You don't need a 24 pin PSU. A 20 pin one will be fine.

    QPack does (my one, at least ;)) have a 24 pin plug, from the PSU supplied, with detachable 4 pin bit for use with older motherboards......will work either way round in most cases, anyway :)
