    I did read the manual, all of it, including page 14. I am talking about pin number 17 on the atx connector from the power supply, not the motherboard. Thanks.

Also, do I need to have two separate RAM sticks since it's dual core? For example, will (8 GB X 1) work just the same as (4 GB X 2), or will I need (8 GB X 2)?
