24-to-20 pin converion question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have a new ATX2.0 PS that's been sitting around for a while. My bro bought it for his computer a while ago but he never ended up using it and went with something else instead. So, I decided to swap a 20-pin plug from an old ATX PS onto the 24-pin ATX2.0 PS. I cross-referenced pin-outs and color charts and everything went smooth until I came accross a problem...


For some reason on the ATX2.0, there's no white -5v wire. I searched around and found the manufacturer's website for this PS, and under -5v it just says 'N/A'??

Has this ever happened to anyone? Is this normal? I find it hard to believe this PS runs without a -5v.

Any help?

TIA.

The -5v rail is used only for ISA slots. Not incorporating it doesn't hurt the system and obviously works (I installed the PS and everything checked out).
