does anyone else have the lanparty series mobo?<br><br>
Do i need to plug in all these connectors or just the 24pin? does it require the 4pin, 4pin molex, and floppy connectors to all be attached to the motherboard to draw sufficient power? It doesn't really clearly state it in the booklet and i don't want to overjuice my mobo >.<

Yes .. for the NF4 series you must have all four (or Three on Expert) power connectors plus a PSU that can deliver at least 480W, 26A+ on the +12v rail.

Plug them all in, it helps when overclocking. The 24 and the 4pin are required. The molex is for extra power when in SLI. I have my 4 pin molex plugged in now and I'm not running SLI. The floppy pin I believe is for extra ram voltage, but I'm not sure on this. Just plug them all in and you'll be ok. The only big thing to worry about when plugging stuff in on a motherboard is usb and firewire. Don't mix them up, if you do, you'll kill your motherboard.

awesome... juice for ocing is always nice... makes wire management a hassle though -.-

<div style="font-style:italic;">so plug in the 24pin, 1floppy connector, 1 molex, and the wierd square 4 pin to my nf4-d?<br>
Starting to wonder if my sunbeam NUUO 550W can handle all this... hopefully it can <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"></div>

Yup, plug them all in. Your Sunbeam NUUO should work great.

Yes all need to be connected for stability. This is esp important if you SLI <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

yeah im pretty sure thats for the super ram voltage that you can do the one with changing the jumper and stuff , regardless if its a power connector and i can plug it in i do it<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

yah right now i have the 4 pin to 2xfloppies being stretched between the floppy drive and the floppy MB connector.... its not stressed or anything, but it looks horrible from the perspective of someone who wants to wire manage
