Howdy again,

Looking at connecting the PSU to my ASUS P5N32 SLI Premium. The PSU is able to provide the 20+4 EATX power connector, and a 4+4 12V power connector for the CPU.

However, reading the ASUS manual for my board, it is not completely clear as to wether I need to utilise the 4 or 8 12V power connector for the CPU. It says I can use either, but I must remove the cap...so which do I use? Is 8 better than 4? :thumbsup:

Here is the link to the MoBo manual.....look at page 2-30...


[CPU]Intel E6600 Core 2 Duo @ 3.19GHz
[MoBo]ASUS P5N32-SLI Premium (nForce590)
[RAM]4GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 CL4 @ 710MHz
[GPU]XFX 8800 GTX 768MB [SLI] @ Stock
[PSU]CoolerMaster 1kW
[Audio]ASUS Xonar D2
[Case]Antec Nine Hundred
[OS]Windows Vista Ultimate 64
[Other]WC'd CPU & SLI

I really would think that it wouldn't matter....like at all...

But my personal preference would be the one that fits without removing caps. Just because It was made for this type of connection.

I go by that if it fits ok and works, then its fine.
