Power pins to motherboard

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My motherboard (Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R) needs 2 plugs, a 2x4, and a 2x12 plug. The system won't boot unless those two plugs are in...

 

My problem is that my PSU only has a 2x12 pin, but not a 2x4 pin :)

Returning the PSU is out of the question because I've modded it and opened it up, and drilled holes etc.

 

Is it possible to get a pin converter? from e.g. 4 pin to 8pin?

Well just wrote up a whole pst about how I had no idea of any mono that needed a 2x4 connector for power, bt looed at the spec sheet and of course you are correct. Then I looked at my psu and I have this connector that I had never even known existed.... I think you won't be able to use an adapter as it is the cpu power connector, and will require specific voltage and current on each pin. Could be wrong, but not worth chancing it imo.
