The last ones have me slip off the 4 pins from the 24 pin connection. You can also get 24 to 20 pin adapters.
I have yet to find a PSU with both 20 and 24 pin power connectors. I do see them with the dual 20/24 adapters.
Too bad you didn't supply a link to the 950w PSU so I could check it out.
Hello, I need to get a new PSU in my dell XPS 720. The one in there now when turned on the power button will flash amber. I have done research and the forums I have read say the same thing. I am unplugged the power supply from the power cord and let it sit for about an hour. Once plugged in and turned back on it will start up. After a while the time it needs to be unplugged just keeps getting longer and longer. I have had the MB replaced twice and PSU once via warranty. I am honestly tired of dell "fixing" the problem so I wanted to replace the 750w with a 950w thinking that it just isn't getting enough juice and will fix the problem.
I have a 950w PSU my dad gave me but the problem I seem to be running into is the MB has a 24pin rail and a 20pin rail and the 950w only has a 24pin and not an additional 20pin. Is there any way to make it work or do I have to break the bank and get a new/used/refurbished one that has a 24pin and 20pin cable?
any and all suggestions would be appreciated.
