    I have a 20 pin motherboard but the power supply I have available has a 24 pin connector. I've read that you can simply plug them together by offsetting the 24 pin one but so far I don't see that working at all (and 'never the twain shall meet', so to speak). I've found adapters but they all say something akin to

    'allows you to connect your existing 20 pin power supply to your new 24-pin compatible motherboard'

    You can use it the other way around, correct?

    thanks

    Thanks much for the reply. I hadn't thought to check and see if the 4 pins snapped off the one I have. I'll check before ordering an adapter.
