Asus m4a79 deluxe quick question Tags: Motherboards Asus Reviews Last response: May 19, 2009 10:05 PM in Motherboards Share nachota1987 May 18, 2009 8:03:46 PM i was looking at the mobo and read some reviews and now i have a doubt. Does it need a PSU with a 8 pin connector? More about : asus m4a79 deluxe quick question Proximon a b V Motherboard May 18, 2009 11:42:44 PM No. That's why 4 of the 8 pins are covered when the board ships. If you happen to have a PSU with an 8-pin, you can remove the tab and use that, otherwise 4-pin works fine. 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?

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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
