Just ordered this power supply from Newegg, and the 20+4 pin connector only has 23 wires going into it! Can this be right? I would think it should have 24.

Here's the PSU; http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?...N82E16817163108

This is my second one of these. I RMA'ed the first one because it also only had 23 wires in the 20+4 pin connector. Do I have to send this on back also now?

Hey What The Who, I looked at the link you provided. Look at the photo of the main MB power connection - you can actually see there that it is missing a wire (top row, 5th from the right). I'd say this is deliberate (especially if this is the second one). Plug it in and see if it works - new PSUs have a safety cutoff anyway, so it **shouldn't** damage you MB...
Had a look at the ANTEC Truepower II (same site) and it is the same. Iguess that is just how they are...? O_o ;)

I see what you're saying. But if that's the 20+4 Pin connector, shouldn't it have 24 pins in it?? Maybe I'm taking the phrase "20+4" to literally?

I have a PSU tester, so I'll check it before I put it in. The one I RMA'ed showed up as being Over Voltage also, so maybe that one actually was bad. Then again, I didn't have it hooked up to anything. But I don't know how that would affect it.

Ahh the joys of modern technology!

I don't see why 24 pins would automatically mean 24 wires. Isn't the pins just them plastic plugs?
