Question about Intel Motherboard
I want to buy MSI P35 Neo2-FR. It has 8-pin power connector to provide power to CPU. But my power supply supports only 4-pin power connector. Will motherboard work if I join them together?
My processor - Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2160.
I just bought a msi p7n sli platinum. my board is better than yours hahaha, j/k, all playing aside, I have the same problem with the 8pin power connection. A power supply rated v2.2 has the proper 8 pin connection, but 2.1 or lower doesn't, regardless, plugging in two 4 atx pin connectors wont work because you'll be taking 4pins away from the main 24 pin plug (even though my manual says 20 pins will work, it doesnt, they lied!!!). However, when I put the normal configuration of 24 then the 4 in place of the 8, it works fine. The only thing i would worry about is overclocking, thats when you need to be careful with your voltages, etc. Also, I read somewhere that the 8 pin is actually 2 four pins, each 4 pin is for each side of the cpu...
