I just bought the ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 and noticed my current power supply (about 3 years old) won't fit the motherboard. The 24pin (20+4) connects fine. But there's a new one I've never seen. I'm used to seeing the 4 pin black/yellow cable from the PSU connect to the MOBO right next to the CPU, but this time it's an 8-pin.

Can anyone help and tell me what I need? Will an adapter work or will I need a whole new PSU?

My MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks

Hello FloydTheDuck;

Your OCZ StealthXStream OCZ700SXS should have 1 X 4+4-pin CPU power connector for that 8pin MB slot.

Ok, there was a 6-pin and a 6+2pin PCI-E connectors, and there were two 4-pin connectors labeled 'CPU1" and 'CPU2'... I tried the CPU connectors side by side, maybe I had one of them upside down when I tried them. I'll try again when I'm home tonight.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Even though one of them is round going into a square hole, it still fit and runs fine at the correct voltage. Thanks for the help.
