I have to add that the colors of the 4 pins seperated from the 24 pin
connector, are red, black, orange and yellow.

I'm installing the AsRock 775i65G motherboard. Connecting the powersupply,
a Seasonic SS430-HB, to the motherboard turned out to be more difficult
than I thought.
First of all, I could not connect the 24 pin connector to the motherboard.
This connector actually consists of a 20 pin psu connector and 4 other
pins. The 4 other pins could be seperated easily from the rest of the
connector by cutting it off with a sharp knife. So after removing the 4
pins I ended up with a 20 pin connector that can be connected to the
motherboard, and 4 other pin with no obvious purpose to me. The colors of
the wires of the 20 pin connector are, by the way, exactly the same colors
of a 20 pin connector of another psu I own - so the 20 pins should really
be the 20 pin ATX connector.
According to the manual of the motherboard a ATX 12 V plug must be
connected to a socket of 4 pins. First I thought the 4 pins I seperated
had to be connected to this socket, but this is impossible.
I then discovered a 6 pin connector of the psu. This 6 pin consists of 3
black wires of 3 yellow wires. Now here are my questions:
1) is the 6 pin connector the 12V plug?
2) what could the purpose of the 4 pins I separated (assuming it is not
the 12 V plug)
3) should I really connect the 12V plug? Isn't the 20 pin connector
Thanks in advance!
