    I have just bought this board from OcUK :cool: (the 2nd one down) and after finishing installing all the components, i came round to connecting the power connecter into the board i noticed that the power lead from the PSU has 2x12 rows of pins and on the board there is only a connecter for 2x10 pins. :(
    Does this mean i have an incompatable PSU or is there something obvious that i am missing or do i need a convertor :confused:

    Someone Help!

    Thanks for any response

    What make and model PSU do you own at the moment. Most PSU's come with a converter, have a look in your PSU box :)

    On my mobo there is a 20 pin socket and when I got my new psu it was 24 pin but noticed that the end 4 clipped off so it was compatable with both 20 and 24 pin sockets.
    if you don't mind abit of diy you could always just cut the last 4 pins off so it fits ;)

    This is what DFI say about 20 pin ATX.

    You may well get away with a 20 pin, but you have been warned so to speak.

    EDIT: I read it backwards as in you have 24 on mobo etc :rolleyes:

    Like...the E is the four pins you dont need.

    As said above 4x pins should just unclip. :)
