  1. I just got my PSU, put it in my computer case but it only has two periheral connections, when the website I got it from says it has 4. Is there some sort of adapter to add two more, because I need to plug in my HD, and DVD drive. Also I have a 8600 Gt that needs to be plugged in.

    You can use a Y splitter cable like this one from any local computer store in your area.

    It's surprising though, because most PSUs come with at least two cables that have two connectors on each.

    I think it's because the PSU came with the case, but in the specs it says it has 4 pin periheral connecters, but it only has two.

    Maybe it means 4 pins per connector. Molex connectors are 4 pin.
