Silly Question...

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
This is my first build. I am installing an Ultra X-finity 600 Watt PSU on to my
P5W DH deluxe.

The P5W has an ATX12V 4-pin connector and an EATXPWR 24-pin connector.

But, my PSU only has a 24-pin power cable. Do I need to connect the 4-pin power connector also?

Or is it either or? Either a 24-pin connector OR a 4 pin and 20-pin power cable?

Just the 24 pin =P
(to power the motherboard)

For your motherboard, use the PWR 24-pin plug to power the motherboard and the AUX 4-pin plug to power the CPU.

the 24 ATX connector will accept the 20 ATX connection. The seperate 4 pin connector is to supply power to your CPU. If it has 2 Y and 2 B wires, that is your CPU connector and must go into the seperate 4 pin connector.

EDIT: beat x.x

OK I don't seem to have a 4-pin connector. Is it attached to the 24-pin connector? Meaning separate the 24-pin into a 20 and 4?

No!

You should have something like this:

24 pin made up of a 20 and 4

AND

8 pin made up of 4 and 4
OR
4 pin made up of 4 in a square

you need to plug in both the 20/24 AND the 4/8
