  1. i bought the antec true power 2.0 430w and after the installation tried to turn it on but it didnt work so checked the wires if they are installed properlly, then i figured out that the 20 pin main power connector(to the motherboard) is missing a wire usually u can see the metal part inside of the wire by look from the top on the connector. so im not sure ist suppose to be like that or just badly made.

    return it to where you bought it from and get a replacement.

    well I hope yu got your money back because what they told you is false. the antec truepower PSU's will work with any ATX motherboard.

    yea thank you
    lol i they say my motherboard is borken due to my old power supply. so now im putting the Asus K8N-E w/ DualDDR400, Audio, Gigabit Lan, SATA RAID(socket 754 platform)into my computer. so finally i can get the antec true power 2.0 to work.
