Had to reply and say ha ha what a noob.
Also have to say this solution worked for me also, my head is hung in shame, spent hours looking for no P4 cable and eventually landed here. Cheers

It happens to all of us sometimes. Best thing to do when working on pc's is to take your time and not get stressed out.
Break out a nice cold one. Sit back, relax and just get your head cleared so you can think properly.

I must an urge to bump this thread as well. My old noisy ****ty PSU finally took a dive (and a big 10A house fuse along with it). Smelling burned electronics, I was mad scared that other components e.g. motherboard/CPU had been injured. Quickly went to a local shop and bought the CX430. At first I had totally forgotten about this connector so I just plugged the 20-pin and tried starting it. Fan moved ¼ row and then nothing. My worries about further damage to my system was getting more severe. Then I remembered the ATX 4-pin plug and got new hope. Couldn't find one though. Started thinking about possible adapters and similar to what TS/OP here is mentioning. Then I ran a Google and, voila, found this thread. I simply splitted the connector and plugged it. Everything worked. My system is back on track, and much more quiet. Thanks!

Even though this is a very old thread.. I have to say as a noob in building computers I had this similar issue with building my third rig and... they should add to the manual that the connector was splitable like honestly I feel ashamed rolleyes.gif
