  1. Is that the right image you meant to link? I count six pins and it's clearly labelled PCI-E (is a secondary PCI-E graphics card power connector - not all cards require it).

  2. sorry not at all what i meant to link i apologize and will get the correct pic up :l ..... damit cant find a pic of it :l ill have to upload but i have no camera ARRRRGGGHHHH!!! its a flat 4 pin connector looks to be one of those that plug directly to the mobo to power fan but it trips me out cause it comes directly from the PSU... :l
