Starting a new build for my older brother and realised that the mobo i just bought - an Intel LGa775 type to go with the E4300 processor, has the new 24 pin power connector but the 400w power supply i wanted to put in it is 20 pin.
Had a search around the internet and discovered that you can buy 20pin to 24 pin adapter cables very cheaply from Maplins. Is this the right thing to get or do I need to buy a brand new psu with 24 pin connector?
Im not intending to run anything in sli or overclock.
They do work but i think there is an issue with power hungry set-ups and are only realy designed to be used with PSUs 400w upwards so yours is on the lower limit so you may not be able to optomise your system..
