PSU issue :x

Hi everybody.

Here's a quick brief:
Building some simple NAS with this specific hardware.

*ASUS AT5IONT-I +4GB ram form QVL
*Corsair CX430m

And here's my problem:
Motherboard have 24pin connector and no 4 pin CPU power connector. It powers just fine with my picoPSU (from some other project), however when I switch it to Corsair CX430m 20pins or 20+4 pins it does not power up at all :/  It seem like 20 pin connector from Corsair has one blank pin while picoPSU doesn't have any however I think that +4pin connector should complement with power necessary to boot up. However its not the case. Any ideas what am I missing? Browsed through manuals and didn't find anything:?

Very respectfully.

PS. Im at home tonight and tomorrow so willing to provide pictures, specs of complete rig, and try every possible idea.

should boot up just fine, have you tested the corsair on your other build?

Tested PSU as recommended (it took a while because i don't have any desktop rigs anymore therefore needed to go to my friends house). It ended up being bad PSU.

Thanks for the help.
