Had to switch out motherboards and now can't make full connection of everything in my system due to different ATX PSUs.
I'm now using Intel D865GLC mATX motherboard. It has 20 pin main ATX connector.
PSU is PC Power & Cooling Turbo Cool 860 which has 24 pin ATX (all 1 single plug, not the 20+4 kind).
Can't get the PSU plug to go to the mobo's ATX connector because IDE ports and a capacitor are in the way. With other boards it always worked because of small extra space allowing for the 4 additional pins of the PSU plug to just hang over.
I've had to revert to using an old PSU with 20 pin just for now, but it doesn't have any SATA power connectors. Now I'm not able to use my SATA HDD. So stuck to use an old, slow IDE HDD (40GB, 5400rpm, 2MB buffer). I really rather use my larger and faster SATA drive (250GB, 7200rpm, 16MB buffer).
Isn't there any power supply adapter cables that allows plugging 24 pin cable to 20 pin mobo connector?
I'm only finding adapters that allow plugging 20 pin cable to 24 pin mobo connector. Last time I tried, didn't even need an adapter for that. The 20 pin cable should plug right into a 24 pin connector and still work fine.... right?
Here's what the board looks like. Notice the IDE connector (right of ATX power) which is right against the 20 pin ATX power connector and the small capacitor (left of ATX power) the other side
