I have an old PSU that only has a 20 pin connector. I connected it to
a board and it ran fine but when it started I got a message that MS
recommended the 24 pin connector. I removed and replaced it but is
there a way I can add that extra 4 pins and use the power supply?
Do a quick Google search using "20 to 24 pin adapter power supply" minus
The adapter cables appear to be around $3.00 and will do the trick for
you as long as the power supply will handle the load of your new system.
There sure are a lot of cheap PSUs:
It makes me wonder if any of them are worth trying. I have always
been willing to pay top dollar for a well known unit that might even
be over priced rather then take any chances.
I stick to reputable brands after I had a budget unit go out, taking a
motherboard and hard drive with it.
years I have never lost anything of value in that manner that I can
remember. I did have a cheap PSU blow up with my face inches away.
Luckily I was right nest to my clean underwear drawer. The unit came
with a case that I bought in a M&P brick and mortar computer shop. I
even expressed how I felt about those PSUs when I purchased it but
they had no comment. I have found time and time again those shops care
little about anything but their bottom line. I am not sad to see any
of them go away.
