Help with Power Supply Cables please!

The 24 pin cable that came with my corsair atx860 psu hooks directly into the motherboard, the. Then side that connects into the PSU had a 24 pin connector, then another 10 pin that splits off from it. What the heck is the 10 pin for? Do I plug it in?

    No... Let me try and explain this better. There is a 24 pin cable that came with the PSU. One side is a single 24 pin(male) The other side of the cable is also a 24 pin connector(male). Except this other side also has another male 10pin connector splitting off of the 24 pin

    OK got it, thank you. Nice psu by the way.
    The 24 pin male=motherboard
    The 18 pin=top left on psu
    the 10 pin=under that in the bottom left

    =24 pin I see they are doing it a little different with that one

    So I for sure connect both the 18pin and 10 pin to the psu at the same time?
  4. YES that's how they are energizing the motherboard's 24 pin. It's printed on it.
