4-Pin On board connector help.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I go this gigabyte board and it has the inline 4-pin molex by the pci slots, however the power supply that I have does not have the 4-pin (square) molex for the main power. So my question is can I just use the inline 4pin connector to supplement that 4-pin power from the main power?

No.
The molex by the pci-e slot is for extra power to said pci-e slots.
You need the square 4 pin for main power.

Thought so, I'll just go down to Frys and get me a 4-pin.
