Note: My reason/excuse for being confused is that on my board, the far left #1 has a cap over 4 of the 8 females, leading me to believe that I should split the EATX12 cable from the PSU and place one in the left and one in the right. It will reach but ...?

Hey D%^&*$,

The board will run with the standard 8 pin EATX pluged in. Use all 8 pins.

If you intend to increase voltage and overclock, I would also use the 4 pin EATX connector to the right.

If you intend to run two are more vidio cards, then I would also use the MOLOX 4 pin to the lower left just above the first PCIE slot.

This provides extra power to the vidio cards.

What he said ^

You can use EITHER the 8-pin, or the 4-pin power plug, or both.

Hey D%^&*$,

Geez, HeadMixer, you sure know how to turn a guy's "actual name" into an obscenity. biggrin.gif

Anyway, as further proof of my neurosis/obsession with detail/desire for perfection, I have the following need for clarification.

I have a total of 4 EATX12 bifurcated/divided shielded cables and in left #1 motherboard female a cover over 4 of the 8 openings - and 4 females on the right side. Should I (for overclocking, best results, etc.) take the cover off the 4 ports on the left side +++ use 1/2 of the other bifurcated shielded EATX12 cable for the right side?

Basically, I'm asking that age old question:

Where should I stick it?

You should take out the little cover and stick 2 of your EATX12 4 pins in each slot and then take a third 4 pin to the one on the right for better overclock.

Hope this helps

Just stick, your EPS12V (8-pin), on the 8-pin socket and be done with it.

Correct, and I was of course aware of that. What I wanted to be careful of is "Priority", a question that arose for me out of the fact that on the left #1 4 of the 8 female "openings" were covered. What was left open was 4 on the left and 4 on the right, my question being why ASUS suggested such a priority.

Very, very clear Jobie. Thanks.

I guess it's one of those American-thinking kinda things. If 8 pills (left #1) are good, then 4 more pills (right #1) will make you feel even better. wink.gif

Thanks all! cheers.gif

(Please understand that after my experience with that damned Gigabyte UD5 board - and still no response, again, from GB tech support, I'm now looking both ways before I cross a 1-way street.)

OK guys, I know you are all trying to give the best advice you can, and I surely do appreciate that.

My problem: Long ago, I decided that I would make all decisions based on Logic. I'm not talking about some slap-happy pedestrian definition of Logic here, but hard-core mathematical Logic.

Now here are 3 facts that I must deal with:

1) ASUS chose to cover 1/2 of the Left #1 (only 4 of 8 pins uncapped) - WHY?
2) Uncapped pins - 4 on Left and 4 on Right
3) Option to Uncap the capped 4 of 8 Left #1 pins - WHY?

Since I do not wish to blow up this new motherboard, I will contact ASUS directly with this question with the fullest intent of getting a definitive answer to all three of the above. And I shall quote their response in this forum, so others may benefit.

Without making a huge Leap of Faith (and I do not believe blindly nor do I surrender my fate in gambling), I cannot bring the above three into a Safe Harmony. In sum, then, all of the advice I have received comes from the heart and is sincere and well-intended. Of that I am certain.

Much of it is, however, mutually exclusive or even contradictory.

Hey ICG,

Me again.

Say I had 4 18 gage wires that I an tring to carry 10 amp on.

So, I uncap the other 4 pin in the socket and plug-in another 4 18 gage wires.

Now, Each set of wires carries 5 amps, or I can get 20 amps total.

I did say to use all 8 pins for a reason.

Put one 4 pin in the connector to the right, now we have 12 18 gage wires that can carry 30 amps.

MORE POWER. ah ha ha ha, AH HA HA HA.

All the amperage rates I implied in the above explanation are hypothetical and were just use to make the point.

Use the 24 pin connector and the 8 pin connector otherwise the system will not boot properly

See page 2-25

It should be connected the same as your CH4F
