Hey guys, recently bought a new PSU for my computer, was an upgraded PSU so it wasnt quite a plug and play for me. Installed the new PSU started plugging stuff in where my old PSU had stuff plugged in. Old PSU I had 4 plugs. 1, 14pin into the mobo, 1, 4 pin into the CPU, and 2 6pins into the GPU. That is all. The SSD, optical drive and fans, from what i gather, were plumbed into the mobo through what i can assume were SATA connector jumpers from device to device and ultimately into the mobo. 

Hooked it all up, didnt work at all.

My new PSU has SATA connectors that came pre-connected inside the PSU. Now my question is, do i need to use these SATA connectors on the new PSU, or can i just leave them empty and use the pre-existing SATA jumpers that go to the mobo? 

Second question, my new PSU has a 24pin mobo connector, and my lenovo mobo has a 14pin connector. Will I be needing a 24pin to 14pin adapter?

Any information for this computer newbie would be greatly appreciated!
 
Black Connector is new PSU 24pin.  White Connector is old PSU 14 pin connector.

Let me know if this is too confusing.  As I am not too computer savvy i might have done a horrible job explaining this!

That 14-pin power connector is not standard one. You have OEM machine built by Lenovo? If yes, then I recommend buying motherboard with standard connectors.

Perhaps if you know exact pinout and even then it's not very reliable to use.

Hmmm.... ok well I guess I could take this opportunity to upgrade my CPU to a i5 and get a new mono. Any suggestions for a new mobo?

Looks like decent computer. I rather buy just new motherboard for that build. Virtually any FM2+ motherboard with 95W CPU support is OK.

Still, ask before buying.
