Hello,

I bought a new psu , Zebronics Platinum 500w. But it has 20 pin connector and also 4 pin connector attached together and these two are covered by good covering, but i cannot connect the 4 pin to my motherboard atx power for CPU. Is it good to tear the covering and connect it to mobo to make it reach the CPI or is there any other ways ?

Hello james124;

Don't rip apart the 20+4 connector.
Use the separate 4pin ATX 12v connector

There should be EPS/ATX adapter cables to change the EPS 8pin PSU cable to ATX 4pin PSU cable.
You definitely don't want to use the 20+4 4pin connector.

Does the EPS 8pin connector look like it's designed to split into a 4pin connector?

If there is room for it to fit - you can use the EPS 8pin cable on the 4pin motherboard aux CPU connector.

Athena Power Model CABLE-YEPS828 6" EPS-12V 8-pin Y-splitter
Splits 8pin EPS cable into 4+4 and 8pin connectors. You'd use half of the 4+4 connector.

pal really thanks. They joined 2 four pins to 8 pins, also they listed specification wrongly. But thanks to you sooooo much, i connected 1 of the 4 pin :)
