Hello, i have an old typical 700w power supply comes with the computer case and it has 1 - atx connector, 3 -molex connector,1 - 4 pin ATX12v , 1 sata connector, 1 peripheral connector.
I want to use the old PSU and videocard for my temporary build
core i5 3570k
z77 sabertooth motherboard
temporary - power color 5570 128bit
this is a temporary build i will upgrade it soon.
i want to know if i can use molex to 8 pin ATX12v or just 4 pin ATX12v, does this will work?
You want to be able to connect 8 pin power to the cpu power header ?
Using an adapter doesn't send more power, just a signal that an 8 pin is connected
1st try using just the 4 pin ATX connector on the left side of the header ( while looking at the clip )
If the board doesn't boot you will need to use an adapter, I prefer 4 pin to 8 pin myself
but if you have a 2x molex to EPS , it should work, just don't try to overclock the smoke out of the chip
