I got a 20pins PSU sitting around almost new and its an ATX psu so the 4 pins mobo connector is there also. With all other molex of course.

My present psu has a 24pins connector with the 4pins mobo connector.

The 20 pins psu got enough amperage on the 12V minimal as statd in the Asus mobo book but i still wanna modify it to 24 pins.

I would cut off the 24pins from the present psu then cut the 20pins new psu and cut a molex.

after ill solder back the 20 wires to the 24 pins connector then with the cutted molex wires ill solder them to the 4 remaining pins of the 24pins psu plug. Finally plug it back with the 4pins mobo plug and Voila!


Anyone of you ever made that?

Yeah Yeah right people will send me links to newegg, tigerdirect and stuff to show mw brand new psu but i dont need it i got a new one at home.

Thanx guys

Why paying when I can do it myself for free? ;)
Sometimes its just easier to pay for it. Take away headaches and if you dont get some of the pinouts correct or they short you will fry soemthing. Better safe than take a risk and be sorry.
