  1. Hi Gang,
    I have a question. with the economy in the dumper, im getting alot of requests from friends to put together some machines for them to use. im working on one now and run into a little problem. I put a newer asus atx board in an older atx case and found that the main power plug is a 24 pin. the power plug from the psu however is a 20 pin. I thought I remember a thread on here on a workaround,or an a adaptation to make this work. anyone know about this? or do I simply need a different psu?
    any help appreciated.

    Simple fix... Install the 20-pin leaving 4 pins open. The 20-pin connector will only fin one way. All should work fine
