Can not find PSU for ASUSP$B266 withA2542 3 pin connect. for CH_F

I think you are a bit confused here. Ther MoBo CH_FAN connector is an output for a Chassis Fan and does not need a supply from the PSU. It is dfor use if you wish to connect a fan to the casing to provide extra cooling and for the fan speed to be reported in the bios..

Do I need a 4pin-4pin DV cable or a 4pin - 6p -with Canon MV 850i

The camera has a 4-pin slot. If the slot on your computer has a slot the same size as your camera, it is 4-pin. If it is larger, it is a 6 pin slot.

Inno3d 9800gt is it compatible with asus p5vd2-mx motherboards?

What I beleive is your problem is that a single 4Pin connector doesn't provide enough of the right power connections. I have a 9600GT and like you my PSU doesn't have a 6pin connector. But fortunately for me the manufacturer of my card (BFG) had the Foresight to include the adapter that I need (Which was a Y cable with 2 4pin (Molex) connectors to one 6pin (PCIe) connector.

First thing I'd do is check ALL of your packaging to see if your manufacturer also included such an adapter. It may be hiding (Taped to the inside of the cardboard packaging or stuffed in a bag with papers/warranty info)

Retail boxes usually list the parts included so you can look to see if a "duplex molex to PCIe" is on it.
If this search proves futile, you might check at your local PC hardwarestore (Best buy, Circuit city, or if you have a specialty store like MilwaukeePC here in Milwaukee)

If that is not an option and you have a credit card/Paypal account you can try an online retailer such as NewEGG or CDW jsut add the dot com to their names for their websites.

I hope you find this Usefull

Asus P4T-M version 1.05 Not Posting?

Hi ed, that 4-Pin ATX_12 connector near the CPU is for powering the CPU. Suggest you change PSU's. Though I'd agree there are some boards that have the 4-Pin connector & it's not used. Those boards usually have a 24 pin main connector & lower voltage CPU's Please check here at Asus web site for P4T-M.

Related FAQ's P4T-M

I'm sure your P4T-M will boot after connecting the ATXPWR, ATX12V. As you noted, it would be nice if you could test the memory. When you get display you can test your memory for free by downloading a mem test program at.

Enjoy the weekend Ed.
