    I was using a DG41Wv Motherboard and recently upgraded to B250g. I was not able to use the SMPS from the old one. What can I do to use my motherboard?

    Pictures attached.
    The first image shows the connector with 4 pins from my SMPS.
    The second image shows the connector on my motherboard with 8 pins. What can I do to solve this?

    Please help.

    Did u try contracting the local hardware vendor before u post ?
    Because I believed they can offer more logical advises than any of the users here, don't u agree ?

    Amolex to 6pin.png I am assuming by SMPS you are talking about the power supply, You need to buy a newer power supply with a 6pin plug on it. Or if you trust your old supply you can get a Molex to 6 pin.
    Also if you are struggling with this you may need to get someone that is knowledgeable to help you upgrade. You do know you can't just put your old hard drive on the new motherboard and expect it to work with out reinstalling the operating system?
