Can someone please explain why I need (or do I?) to connect my PSU to the 4 pin ATX 12v, 4 pin connector on my A8N-SLI Deluxe. My brand new PSU (Silverstone Zeus 650w) does not even have a 4 pin cable.
I obviously have the 24 pin main power supply cable going to the mobo. I just don't understand the difference.
I was fortunate to find an 8 pin to 4 pin connector in my bag of left over goodies from other projects so I CAN make the connection but I'd like to avoid this if possible. How important is this connector? Thanks.
Thanks, I think I've got it. So the 4 pin provides power directly to the CPU whereas the 24 pin main power connector is what gives power to the overall motherboard? If so then I can certainly see it's necessity.
650w SS Zeus and an A8N-SLI Delux. No square 4 pin coming from the power supply. Is there somewhere that I can purchase an adapter? I also live in Southern Oregon. In the boonies between Medford and Roseburg.
