Hi guys,
Bought an MSI mainboard second hand and a new PSU. The board has a 20 pin socket but the PSU has a 20+4 power plug.
Can I just chop off the end 4 bits and use the psu as normal? Put another way, is the 20 pin part of the plug the same connections as the old regular 20 pin? Its a P4 setup by the way.
Thanks,
J

is the simple answer - you may find that the 4 will snap off

Yes as IntoPCs says they often clip off.

The psu comes with these extra pins already seperated so that you do not have to chop them apart...what is the make of the psu?
