Hi, sorry for my english.

I have Thermaltake TR2 500W TR-500P 24+8+4+6+6/8 pin
(Model: TR2500AH2NFB), ATX 12V 2.3.

And mobo ASUS P8H61-M 24+4 pin

There is a lack of 1-pin in the 20-pin connector in PSU, just a hole. Is normal?
Сan it Damage or affect anything? Or What?

And by the way, is it a reliable model or crap?

We get this all too often.
-5v was removed from the ATX spec many years ago, it's why you have a missing pin and won't affect your system.
Oh, and an over priced, not very good psu, but should do for a low end system

But why does the mobo, still have this pin?

I mean, it have a tiny metal pin in the pin hole.

I hope you understand my Engrish.

Is it would be better to buy a Corsair CX500 V2, for example or some Chieftec or Zalman, for that price.

IMO, the Corsair would be better, here in the US it's half the price of the TT, not neccessarily a better psu though.

Plenty
That's an awful lot of fans though, you looking to make the system hover ?

At the place where I currently live, a very hot summer and I can't by a conditioner because i can't put it on/in the building.
And my PC becomes very hot sometimes. So I use 7+ fans and same number of filters.
Here is in the summer usually dusty, smoky, heat. (Looks like Hell, right. :pt1cable:  ).

Thanks for spending your time on my questions.

You really helped me. You are the Best ;)

Certainly sounds like it.
Good luck with the build.

PS; I'd do away with the old sound card, onboard has come a long way
