ATX 12V on a socket AM2

  1. Yeah. Should I hook the ATX 12V 4 pin connector to the MB with a socket AM2 processor? I remember you had to do this with Intels in the past but not with AMDs. I would assume you're supposed to plug it in, otherwise why would it be there, right? Plus, all processors probably consume more power nowadays.

    Yes, definitely plug it in. It may have started with Intel but AMD uses it too.
