indianatone, to be sure. Are you speaking of this one? http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-DP...s+power+supply
This thread made me realize that it's been well over a year since I even turned on my desktop computer. I do everything on my work laptop (windows 8.1) and my personal laptop (13" MacBook Pro).
Want to sell it, Parks?
I left here using my daughter's Dell Inspiron laptop with 7. Not exactly a thrilling experience for me.
The thing is ancient history now. Core 2 Quad Q9550, 8GB of RAM, 80GB Intel SSD, 1TB WD Caviar Black, Nvidia GTX570, Antec P180 Case, Corsair HX630 modular power supply.
Helluva lot better machine than I have! I guess I'm going to have to get serious about building one.
Thanks, Count. I'm going to try one of the 20 pin PSUs I have laying around just to get it up and running although I don't understand how that works, but you guys know more than I do. What happens to the other extra empty pins on the MoBo then?
Ok. I see. Thanks again, Count.
I'm not really sure why those extra 4 pins on a motherboard do. I do believe that they weren't put there just because the manufacture had spare time on their hands.
I do recommend using a proper quality power supply. If your motherboard has a 24 pin connector then use a power supply of quality with a 24 pin connector.
