As topic says.

Is it possible to fit an old AT PSU onto an old ASUS P2B Motherboard (ATX)

The thing I am missing is the prober plug form the PSU. It only have the AT
connections. And the MB has the ATX plug.

Can it be done??

I do not need the features of the ATX MB, just for it to run.

Thanks in advance.

The AT supply is missing the +3.3v supply, the +5vsb circuit, and the
PS_ON circuit. All are required by the ATX MB. The latter two *might*
have "work arounds" possible, but the former is needed (unless you
want to do some engineering.)

So....no.

I had the same problem with AMD 2.8 xp pro + or what ever they call their
2.1 gig CP in an Asus board.

Replacing the thermal pad with the paste stuff fixed it.

You CANNOT use an AT power supply on an ATX board.
