I just installed a new PSU in my computer and found my motherboard is a 4 pin female eps connection and the supply i bought has a 6 pin male.
So currently I have 4 of the 6 plugged into the board with 2 overhanging of the side. It works fine but it makes me wearey about maybe frying my board.
Im wondering if this will be a problem or not. I cannot find a proper adapter anywhere, so maybe some where here know where i can find one.

Thanks for any help.

Hello gnardog;

What PSU do you have?
You should only have 4pin ATX or 8pin(or 4+4) EPS CPU Aux power connector on the PSU.
As far as I know the only 6pin connectors are the PCI-e power leads for video cards.
