Suitable case/psu for ASUS P4S800-mx

  1. I have purchased an ASUS P4S800-mx mobo and I noticed it needs the standard 20-pin power connector but ALSO needs a 4-pin connector "to ensure adequate power supply to the CPU". Does this mean I need a different PSU? Or do all new PSU's (or PSU-Case comobos) come with both these power connectors?

    Thanks,
    Michael

    A lot of power supplies do come with the 2x2 4pin connector but if not, you can get an adaptor.

    just check the PSU you're going to buy. I think you'll be quite safe, most PSUs today should come with the extra 4-pin conncetor. But it doesn't hurt to doublecheck.

    Here's a pic of a 4-pin connector.

    Should have only 1 of these, but don't worry if there's more.
