Question about Biostar : I945P-A7 LGA775/945P/DDR2/SATA/IEEE Motherboard (MOTBI23)
The power supply connection on the board has more pins than what is on the power suppy connection how do I connect this?
Apparently your power supply is an ATX 20-pin type (v1.x) and is the standard a year or 2 back. Your motherboard being fairly recent uses the new standard which is ATX1 24-pin type (v2.x).
Your options are:
1. Replace your power supply with a higher wattage/XX pin;
2. You may still use the old 20-pin power supply provided that it is rated 300 watts or higher. Additionally, please bear in mind that using a 20-pin PSU to an ATX1 (24pin) may cause boot failure and/or instability during operation due to insufficient power delivery.
I scanned part of a motherboard's manual to illustrate how this could be done. Below is the image for your reference.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
