wow...it might actually be the PSU. I hooked it to my ECS K7S5A that I'm using right now and it wouldn't work. I gotta do some testing and hook this PSU I'm running right now to my Neo2, and also go through the xclio with a multimeter.

I'll be a little HOT if that PSU that I bought brand new January 2007 and hardly used ended up quitting and frying my mobo. I'll be back soon.

EDIT: this PSU is so cheap and old it doesn't even have a 4-pin atx 12v connector.
reEDIT: the PSU tests out on the workbench hooked to nothing. I gotta try to get it hooked up to a system so I can test it under load. I wish I had more of a computer workshop.....someday I definitely will. All this screwing around is for the birds.

quick question...can you hook a PSU that has atx 12v 4-pin connector to a mobo that doesn't have a place for one?

Sounds like a trick question and I would have to say no on this one.

yes definitely. The PSUs are "backwards" compatible with older motherboards that still use the ATX standard.

That might explain it not working when I tried this morning.
The voltages were all very steady during my testing of the PSU with it not hooked to anything. It's going to be a real PITA to go hook it to another pc to run prime and test it under load, but I guess I should do it so I KNOW what I'm working with. I'm pretty sure the mobo is the problem. I'll be back.

EDIT: ohhh thanks nategr8ns. I guess that puts me right back where I started

Oh man my bad I read his post to quick and was thinking he wanted to plug the 4 pin 12v plug into a mobo that did not have a slot for it.

@ NY Driver yeah you can just about use any power suply on any mobo as long as it's ATX to ATX but you can not use an AT power supply on an ATX mobo unless you mod the plugs w/the correct power cables to the correct ATX plugs. For a while when they were switcing over from AT to ATX you had the option to use either type as the power supplies came w/both AT and ATX plugs.

I've got an old ECS K7S5A with no 4pin atx 12v jack, and I wanted to hook a modern PSU to it which has an optional removable 4 pin cable.

9 out of 10 times if the cables plug from the power supply matches the receiving plug on the mobo they will work together supposing you don't force the plug to fit. i.e. don't force a PCIe 8 pin connector into a 8 pin 12v connector on a mobo. If you mobo only has 20 pins at the ATX connector and your power supply has 24 you should still be able to use it so long as you plug it in the correct way and vice versa w/a mobo that has 24 pins and a psu that only has 20 pin plug. IMO You can not hurt a mobo by using a more powerfull power supply then what a mobo requires unless the power supply is bad and sends to much voltage to the mobo due to some short circuit or other defect anomoly.

Yep, N2 is right.

Luckily they still make PSU's with the 20+4 ATX plug in along with the 4 pin molex plug. Many PSU's have the 4 pin molex for both types or to run these in a combined config with boards that use both for the CPU such as my 939 DFI Expert.
The 20+4 ATX is useful mainly for older boards such as my AN7, NF7, A7N8X, DFI NF2 Infinity, ect while also being for use with the newer 24 pin ATX boards.
Of course you can mod these plugs for use with a 20 pin ATX connection if need be.

Rated wattage isn't a big thing to worry about unless it's too little wattage. All that means is the PSU CAN put out this amount of power if it's needed. I tend to run a much larger PSU than I really need to be sure it's always getting enough power and for other, obvious reasons.
