Yes you will only use 20 of those 24 pins on this motherboard.

I have got a system with an Aopen motherboard which having only a 20 pin connector for smps connectivity. the Atx smps i have is is 24 pinned. i can connect the main line by splitting up the 24pin...


The actual Processor fan connects to the CPU Fan header on the mainboard. It's 4 small pins. It plugs in right near the CPU socket on the mainboard. Check the user manual for exact placement, you may download it from the AOpen website if you don't have one already.

Plug in the 20Pin connector if that is the most Pins that the mainboard will allow. Cable tie the other 4Pins back onto the 20Pin connector.

Then if there is additional 4Pin connector required by the mainboard for CPU power and you don't have that connector on you power supply, you will need to purchase a Molex to 4Pin CPU power connector. When you go to the computer store check with them that all is correctly connected.

Take care!

No keyboard, no display, doesnt sound like computer boot ups


firs remove the cover and remove the 24 pin conected to the motherboard from the smps you will also see another 4pin conector conected to your motherboard from the smps remove them to then short the pin green and bleck in the 24 pin connector and see wether the smps fan is working if working coneect the 24 pin to the motherboard leave the 4 pin aside and switch on the computer if the processor fan is working switch of the computer and connect the four pin conector to the motherboard and switch on the computer if the processor fan is not working then you have problem with the motherboard

Most motherboards now have a 24-pin power supply connector. If you haven't already found a diagram showing the pinouts of the 20- and 24-pin power plugs, here's one borrowed from a handy site:

pgh_pa_guy_1.jpg

The two plugs are essentially the same, but the 24-pin version duplicates some voltages on the extra pins. The extra pins in the larger connector were meant to provide extra current paths for voltages that see heavy loads from newer processors and motherboard circuitry. Depending on how a motherboard is designed, it might work with a 20-pin plug connected (leaving pins 11, 12, 23 and 24 empty). But typically if the board has a 24-pin connector it needs the 24-pin power supply plug.

Most power supplies have a 20-pin plug with a separate 4-pin section that fastens to it for connection to a 24-pin mobo connector. It typically has one side designed to slide onto the end of the 20-pin plug, essentially turning it into the 24-pin version. This added plug does not have a retaining clamp on its side, so you can tell it from the the 4-pin CPU power plug. The wire colors are also different. For reference, here is the processor power plug, from the same website:

pgh_pa_guy_2.jpg
New motherboard specs call for the separate processor power connector for the same reason the extra pins were added to the power supply connector: to handle the high currents needed by increasingly faster CPUs.

When the motherboard has these connectors, you need to use them all to get everything working. Hope this helps. Thanks to smspowersupply.com for the diagrams, and thank you for using Fixya.

Can you connect the 4pin power supply to the 8pin on board 12v


Yes, you can connect the 4 pin power supply to the 8 pin with little trouble but, you should not try any advanced features like overclocking or crossfire. If you would like to do those things I suggest getting a 4 to 8 pin adapter (very cheap usually less than $5) at most local computer stores.

System won't turn on but when i pushg down on one side of the power suply connectore the fan starts running but computer stioll won't turn on it used to boot up then opne day stopped


It sounds like you have a faulty connector - I would return the item under warranty. Otherwise, if it is out of warranty, you will have to source a new motherboard.

The extra 4 pins on the power supply's atx connector is for new motherboards that require 24pin power supplies. If your motherboard has a 20pin port, then only connect the 20pin portion of your power supply connector.

If your power supply has a 24pin fixed connector that can't be split into a 20+4pin configuration, and your motherboard doesn't have space to let the extra 4pins on the side, then you might want to consider returning the power supply and change it for one that can be used as a 20 or 24pin. Otherwise you will need to cut the extra 4pins apart.

No display or POST


WAS THE POWER SUPPLY WORKING? IS THE 4PIN BLACK AND YELLOW CONNECTOR FROM POWER SUPPLY IN PLACE? DID YOU TRY BIOS CLEAR? IF IT IS NOT A NEW BOARD - CHECK FOR BLOWN CAPS AROUND CPU (UPRIGHT CYLINDER TYPE THINGIES. RESEAT RAM. CHECK IF MAYBE ONE OF 24 PIN ATX CONNECTOR DIDN'T PUSH OUT OF SLEEVE.
