PSU 20Pin - > 24 Pin

I have an OCZ 520 Modstream... My mobo has a 24 pin socket. My PSU has 24 pin socket. There is a little 4socket plug on the side of the 20socket. Should I buy an adaptor or plug that 4socket plug right next to it?

  1. My mobo has a 24 pin socket. My PSU has 24 pin socket.

    What is the question?

  2. If your system works leave it alone. In many cases you can use an ATX psu on an ATX2.0 mobo. I dont think those 4 extra plugs are 12v lines so it probably wouldn't be good to plug one of the 4 pin plugs into it :)

  3. I think i figured it out... one of the 4 pins actually slides right next to the 20 pin plug to form a 24 pin plug. I think that will do it.
  4. How do you like the OCZ 520 so far? Looks like a cool PSU.

  5. the cables are a tad bit short.. but I guess its pretty good.
  6. As in they don't reach, or just tight?

  7. well the mobo cable barely made it to the mobo socket... the cables are stiff too.
  8. I have another question... Each of the fans in my case have 3 plugs: one tiny 3 soc and two 4 pin plugs. I only need to hook up the 3 pin plug to get the fan to work because the other 4 pin plugs are merely used as extension cords correct?
  9. Not sure I understand. But will go on what I know... The PSU sometimes will have a (2-pin) 4-pin connector for fan only... Which can be daisy chained for fans if connector is supported by fans. The 3-pin connectors usually hook up to mobo and also monitor fan speed along with supplying power... These can not be daisy chained...
