PSU for Intel P4 motherboard

  Catastrophe 15:11 31 Oct 2006

I have an Intel D865GBF motherboard which I am trying to fit into a new large case without a PSU.

I have bought two PSUs now (535 and 600w) but they don't fit. The M/B has a main power connection with 10 sets of wires as follows:

red red black red black red black green/grey black yellow.

Both PSUs have 12 sets of wires as follows:

red red black red black red black grey blue stripe yellow red (Both seen from one side only)


red red black red black red black grey/white blue yellow yellow red

Am I getting the wrong PSUs (sellers said they were OK) or is there a converter like I have a 8 pin to 4 pin converter - two yellow and two black (and 4 empty).

I am really living up to my handle at present. Any advice gratefully received.

The Jeantech in PCworld is a good one 500watt and I think it as two year warranty. I put one in my 98se comp this year

Many thanks for that information. Does it have the correct connector? Why these different connectors?

  woodchip 15:36 31 Oct 2006

Yes it as the four wire plug as well, Ask him to show you the plugs

PS I am not sure but think it also as Sata plugs

PPS yes just had a look, as the side is still off the comp. It as two sata plugs

Thanks again. Is there some distinguishing name or description to sort between the 10 and 12 connectors? I don't have a PCWorld very close and will buy by mail so would like to get the identification correct.

Asit is I still have the Box. Only a plain one but the Jeantech part number is on the end of the box

986244 It says "compatible with amd and intel prescott" Auto Smart Fan Control, Built in Temp Sensor. Over Volts/Temp/Short Circuit Protected

PS it's 20 and 24 pin ATX connections

Many thanks indeed!!

I phoned PCWorld and they do both 20 and 24 pin PSUs so if I ask for 20 I should be OK.

I will mark this as resolved ...

Just one final point - is there such a thing as a 20 to 24 pin converter?

Yes there is! Just googled.

20 to 24 pin power supply converter for ATX 2.0 motherboards

Could save myself £60 but is the Intel P4 D865GBF ATX 2.o?

I don't understand these complications
