i recently bought a power supply upgrade for myself and i was wondering since my motherboard only takes a 20 pin power cable can i slide off the 4 at the end and use the other 20 pins or do i need to buy a adapter. Alse to power supply is atx and the case is (hp pavilion) slimline. Im running it outside the case. Would i run into any other problems do you think?

Dont think would give u any problem if it stays outside. Y u can remove that 4 pin and insert it.

No just connect it. It wont make any difference. At least thats why its made with that removable pin ;)

Yeah thanks, i was also thinking since its a mini motherboard does it take a special connector or anything? Sorry about the idiotic questions. I normally know a lot about computers but when it comes to my own one i get nervous.

Hmm i did some searching at it seems that i could maybe do some soldering to make it fit. How hard would this be and do you see it as a possible solution?
