....there are no 6-pin plugs on a motherboard.


You will find 24/20 primary plugs and ATX AUX which is 4-pin. Higher-end motherboards have one or two EPS plugs which are 8-pin. Additionally, some high-end motherboards also have a 4-pin Molex or 4-pin floppy power plug for PCIe lanes.

I found out the 4+4. idk whats wrong with me today lol
I'm soo hungover and can't think straight.

Anyway, I got the thing started up and XP is installing. Basically there's a 6pin on the PSU, a 20 pin power and then there was a 4+4 that I thought was something else. I wanted to plug the 6pin into the 4pin beside the CPU.

Sorry for all the confusion :x

Precisely. So the only thing I can imagine OP talking about is jamming a video card 6 pin into the motherboards 4 pin CPU port. Which wouldn't be a very good idea.

Edit: Glad you found that OP.
