    I am swapping out a PSU on an older machine. The MB is an ASUS A7V600. The -12 volt rail is missing, and I really don't have the time or the patience to hunt down an old ATX 1.1 PSU.

    It seems to work OK without the minus 12, but I can't find any conclusive literature
    on this obsolete motherboard.

    Will it be OK, or do I need to e-waste it?

    Swapping MB's will mean reinstall, reactivation, ad nauseum.
    Besides, this is a nice motherboard. The junk on the market today scares me.
    This is my workhorse. My baby.

    ATX 2.x still has a -12 volt rail, however it does not have a -5 volt rail that was used for older ISA slots/cards.

    I stand corrected. So, I don't have to worry, then.
