Are you sure? Have you actually counted the pin holes?
I have a 24 pin power supply socket on my motherboard and a malfunctioning power supply with a 24 pin plug. I want to get a new power supply, but the vast majority I see for sale have 20+4 pin plugs. I want to know can I plug a 20+4 pin power supply plug directly into my 24 pin socket on my motherboard, or do I need an adapter to make it work? And if not, what kind of adapter do I need? Is there a "20+4 pin female to 24 pin male" adapter, or will the "20 pin female to 24 pin male" work?
