Powersupply compatability question Tags: Power Supplies Powersupply Components Last response: February 22, 2006 10:42 PM in Components Share ascarletrequiem February 20, 2006 9:14:13 PM Hello, im building my first SLi system soon and i was wondering if a 20+4 pin power connector will work in a mobo with a 24 pin connector? Just for reference the PSU im thinking of useing is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681... and the mobo is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E1681... Also if anyone has any Suggestions for better PSU's or Mobo's im open, however i must have at least 2 extra PCI slots because im still stuck in the dialup age . Thanks for all your help!

You must be crazy... But yes, a 20+4 mobo pin will work in a 20-pin mobo. There are 20 pins on the main connecter, and another 4 that can be clipped onto the main 20 in case you have a 24-pin mobo, thus making it 20+4. ascarletrequiem February 22, 2006 8:36:33 PM thanks man, you were a big help!!

Pretty much all modern (note keyword, modern, as in within the past 2-3 years) PSUs will connect to your motherboard, no matter what type of connection. For example: 20+4 pin PSU on 24-pin mobo: Clip on the extra 4 pins 24 Pin PSU on a 20-pin mobo: Use the 24-to-20 pin converter that is included And of course the other 2 combinations, 20 to 20 and 24 to 24 which will of course work.
