Post PSU connector fun Reply with quote
New mainboard for my wife, it has an 8-pin ATX additional CPU power socket.

Her PSU doesn't have an 8-pin ATX, only a 4-pin. The mainboard won't boot with a 4-pin, unfortunately. Can I better:

- get a Molex-to-ATX(4) adapter and feed it 4pin+4pin
or
- get an adapter that will make 1x 12v into an 8-pin (molex to 8, 4pin to 8 pin, whatevs)
or
- get a new PSU no matter what

Thanks!

I think I've used 4pin+4pin before without trouble, but I can't give you any guarantee.

The EPS12V connector can be obtained by using two ATX12V connectors.




If you don't have two of the little buggers then I recommend a new PSU. Never bodge job on a power supply or your going to have a bad time.
