    This is probably a no-brainer, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    I just bought an ATX power supply with a 24 pin connector.

    My motherboard has a 20 pin connector.

    The power supply box says:
    MODULAR MOTHERBOARD CONNECTORS (20-PIN TO 24-PIN INTERCHANGEABLE, NO CONVERTER REQUIRED)

    SO - does this mean I can use it?

    Do I just let the 2 extra "pins" on each side just hang there?

    I figure the answer is "yes", but I want to be sure.

    Thanks, in advance.

    You should be able to use the ps. Look closely at the atx connector you will see part of it will detach. You now plug in what is left to the 20pin connector on the board.
