Hi Guys,

Does anybody know dow to bodge one of these together?

Surely it must only be a couple of wires on the 20 pin are bridged to the other 4 pins?

I need to test that an LGA CPU is working, and have only got a 20-pin PSU to test it on :-(

Cheers, but that was US stores. I changed to the .co.uk froogle and only found a couple....This being one of them...

To me that looks like a 24-pin female to a 20-pin male, which is not what i'm after - what do you think?

I have read about people just plugging in their 20pin psu in the 24 pin without a hitch. I have seen it done with the 875P-T several times. Personally, I would be more inclined to buy the adapter just to be safe? Does the owners manual say anthing about it?

I didn't get an owners manual as such. Just a quick kide book type thing.

Maybe i'll see if DFI have a manual on their site

[H]ardocp says that the extra power connectors are used especially for the PCI-E, and use of a 20-pin PSU is still fully compatable.

"These new motherboards and video cards come with new power connections. We now have a 24-pin port for our mainboard power. Don't fret though, the legacy of ATX is not gone just yet. Your 20-pin ATX12V power supply will work just fine with this new technology, as shown in the pictures. "
