I have recently bought a NF7-S and I found that it had these extra 4 pin connector for the PSU. But im currently running the board without it being connected. I Iwas wondering what this is for and would I be better of with it connected or not???
Thanx in advance for any help given!!! Addict_OC
More aboutextra connector
originally found on P4s, it is simply what you'd think - supplies extra power to the mobo, as the standard ATX connector was not always supplying enough. If your system's stable it's not a problem, but plugging it in probably won't do any harm.
This thing has only recently started appearing on AMD mobos, and I'm a bit suprised that no-one seems to have brought it up much... maybe I missed something?

It's not essential to connect it. I built a system for my friend with this MB and the power supply he bought had this connector. So, I connected it.
Some people claim that this extra connector can be useful for overclocking. But, I never got the chance to test or see some articles about that.
