View Full Version : PSU Question

23-12-2005, 08:38 AM
I'm just finishing off my new pc but I have a question about the PSU before I boot it up. The motherboard has a 24 pin connection but the power cable form the psu has a 20+4 connection, that is it hasa 20 pin plug and a 4 pin plug in a mesh sleve. So do I just plug both into the motherboard? Looking at the manual the pins on the extra plug match up to the spare 4 pins on the motherboard (voltage wise). Also it does have the extra 4 pin connector that plugs elsewhere on the motherboard.
The power supply is a Task 520 W and the motherboard is ASUS A8N5X socket 939. Im fairly sure that this is what I'm ment to do but the psu came with no information on this and I really dont want to kill my new pc. Really.

the psu is as this (http://www.task.com.tw/ps-atx-jumbo.htm) page, except it has a a 4 pin connector coming out of that black sleve with the mobo connector.

ur not confusing? bcos many m/boards have a 4 pin for the cpu fan as well. connect that up first .. and see what pins plugs u have left.

had a look at link. u have 20pin to motherboard. 4 pin 12V is to CPU fan a diff connector on the m'board. 6 pin AUX, this is the PCI Express right? To me don't think u have that 24 pin, some I do know have a 20pin and a 4 pin that can be joined up, and a 4pin to cpu fan? Somebody can assist here... :help:

these are plugs u need

I am 100% sure that it is 24 pin, the psu has a 20 pin connector and a 4 pin connector coming off that.
I booted it up now and it runs fine so I think I answered my own question. Thanks for the help.
