Default Please spread the word

Make my life easy I'm serious help me out guys.

20 t0 24 pin motherboard connectors yes you can detach the 4 pin.

I don't have a 4 pin 12 v with my power supply. Check you 8 Pin you can detach it and that would convert it into a 4 pin 12 V

Please Please Spread the news help me out.

Yeah, I think that most of the 8 pin CPU power connectors detach to 2x2/2x2.

I had the same problem a while ago and that was how it worked out for me anyways.

Most do.

But most end users aren't smart enough to figure that out.

It stumped me for a second when I got a new Silverstone PSU. They really don't make it all that clear..besides, I think all day why should I have to think about PSU connectors afterwards

Nah, you should have seen me. I had just purchased some e-power PSU (that I'm going to huck into the woods when I get my silverstone), and I read that my old mobo only had a 2x2 proc. connector. I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off because I thought I ordered the wrong part.

I posted on here, and GalvanizedYankee put some rest to my troubled mind.

Moral of the story? You aren't alone.
