Sound like it's a 24pin ATX V2 unit and you've connected it to a 20pin board without a convertor. You need a 24->20pin convertor for the board, did the psu not have one bundled in the box?

On a 24pin ATX connector, pins 1 to 10 and 13 through 22 match the 20pin ATX connector's pins. It's only the last four pins that do not mate with a 20pin ATX socket thare are new. That is with the exception of the -5V line (I think), which is no longer provided on the 24pin ATX connector.

Loosely translated, 24pin ATX connector is mostly compatible with 20pin ATX connector with the exception of -5v. The biggest issue is mechanical compatibility, where there may not be free space on the end of the 20pin socket to allow the extra four pins to dangle.

If you check out pins 1 to 10 on the 20pin ATX connector, they will match pin 1 to 10 on the 24pin ATX connector. If you check out pins 11 to 20 on the 20pin ATX connector, they will match pins 13 to 22 on the 24pin ATX connector. Remember how the pins are numbered, in two rows.

Was there a specific reason why you upgraded the PSU?

womble bought a new m'board and CPU and wanted a bigger PSU for them. A 24-pin to 20-pin adaptor came with my then new power supply. My newest mainboard is a 24-pinner, best believe I won't throw the 24 to 20-pin adaptor away!

Before I bought the expensive power supply I bought a 24-pin to 20-pin adaptor from a local retailer. It's backa**wards. If womble wants to buy a pin convertor, it would be wise to grill the etailer or retailer as to its maleness and femaleness first off.

some good psu's allow you to slide off the last 4 connectors, so it'll fit on anyboard

Thank for the response, sorry I have been in hospital (small Heart attack), OK now. Last 4 pins are disconected, so not fitted wrong way, It may be that the board went faulty after psu was changed , I am putting pennies to buy a new mobo. Micro Direct do no even answer my emails when I sent them, I got the psu from them on the 30th of last month.

Dude, last I checked, NO heart attack was small. I'm distressed to hear that you have suffered this, and hope you are safely on the road to recovery.

I'm sorry to hear that the tussle with your power supply landed you in the hospital! I hope your recovery is complete. Do you have a friend or neighbor that can handle this obnoxious power supply issue while you attain satori?

Eesh, my first sentence isn't meant to be a dig, I'm sure much more serious matters caused your health problem.

I checked the paperwork on the atx plug, my mistake, marked next to pin 11 is RS+. If you remove that reference it is pin for pin and voltage OK. I did not notice that there was 11 names and only 10 pins ,,,, DUH, I hopefully will have a new motherboard and will try it out soon. If it does not work then back to the drawing board. Thanks guys for all the help and get well wishes ..........
