Hello all,

I may have bitten off more than i can chew. I just got a new corsair cx600 and a gtx 660 and was trying to install them. I figured i could simply unplug the old psu connections and plug in the new psu cables in their place. The very 1st one i take out is labelled P7 and is a 4 pin and which i unplugged from the mother board. Well, i do not see a 4 pin on the new psu. The 'instruction' manual says there is a 24pin main power connector that has a detachable 4-pin connector but this is not a p4 or ATX12V connector. Do not force it into the p4 or atx12v socket on the mother board. I do not see any writing on the motherboard near the socket i just unplugged so how do i know if its a p4 or atx12v?

Anyone willing to help me through this install of psu and gpu?

The corsair should have an 8 pin 12 volt connector that splits in to two 4 pin sections. Use either one for your new board. Refer to step B under installation in your manual:
