On modular power supplies, what are the various 6 pin red or blue colored pins or plugs for as opposed to the regular 4 pin plugs?
What goes where?
And for the 20/24 main mobo plug, if your mobo has a 24 plug receptacle, but has a little piece of instructional tape or sticker over the last 4 holes, what does that mean? Should you just plug in all 24 pins? Does your mobo manual tell you what to plug in or not? Will you blow up your mobo if you plug in all 24 pins instead of just the first 20?
That tape is there to show you where to plug in a 20 pin plug, if you only have 20 ofc, same with the 4/8 pin cpu socket, if you only have a 4 pin cpu line from your psu, use the uncovered ones
As for the colour codes on a modular psu I can only say refer to the manual I'm afraid
Although as a rough guide, the 6 pin will be for graphics cards
My ASRock Z68 Pro manual is about 256 pages long of which about 34 are in English, the rest in various other languages.
And I must be getting old or going blind, but some of the type fonts are so small that I have to use a magnifying glass and even that is not enough for some of the type around the little pin diagrams. Does it cost them a few pennies more to use a larger type font? I wonder if I can download an online manual for my board that I can actually read?
Well, I did download the ASRock Z68 Pro 3 manual from the ASRock site and you can enlarge it to whatever magnified level you need to read some of the small type on the USB pin plugs etc. Now all I have to do is read it and duh, understand it. I hope I don't get a brain freeze or other bodily function noise. I guess the English would call it a brain break wind.
I've drunk several lifetimes worth of beer already hehe, got bored of it, fish and chips is a cliche to be honest, its got to be 15 years since I last had any chips,
