Sorry about that, it is a GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard, Phenom II X4 940 Processor, and an HEC 585w power supply. I thought I read somewhere that you shouldn't run anything more than a 95W CPU with just a 4 pin plug, I just wondered if the adapter can change the amount of power the board can draw safely or if it is still limited by the 4 pin plug.
I agree completely about the power supply, but he is on a pretty tight budget so he might run it on that power supply for a while until he can get a good one. I have always wondered about the 4 pin to 8 pin adapters though. Thanks for the help.
Lol well that's not a problem. That PSU is what i like to call "experimentals" xD when i buy PSU's like that - they are either used & abused for my testing purposes or saved for backups (if they survive).
And not a problem If you need any more help or have any more questions feel free to send me a message x).
