If you happen to have a PSU with an 8-pin, you can remove the tab and use that, otherwise 4-pin works fine. | Report abuse nachota1987 May 19, 2009 4:50:41 PM do they do that because the "old" psus have the 4 pin and the new ones have the 8 pin? whats the difference? | Report abuse Proximon Motherboard Authority May 19, 2009 10:05:49 PM There doesn't seem to be any practical difference. I'm sure the ATX spec was changed for a good reason, perhaps because they were expecting processors to pull more current. Yes, older design PSUs only use the 4-pin. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Asus m4a79 deluxe quick question> Related ressources: ForumInstalling cooler master hpyer 212 evo on asus m4a79 deluxe ?
