Not sure about updated power supply

\015 HP Presario SR5410F Desktop. Came with a 250W power supply. I bought a 650W supply. The old supply has a 20 pin connector for motherboard (MS-7525 Boston) and the new supply has a 20+4 connector. My motherboard has 24 pins. HP recommends only using the 20 pins. What will happen if I hook up the extra 4 pins? Does my motherboard support the extra power?\015

Answers :

Gee. If HP recomends you not to hook up the extra four pins it must be because the four either go nowhere,which may cause a short or ground condition.Or that the extra pins will power something that will then  be in excess andd cause it too burn out. They know what will happen and for that rwason caution you not to do it. Of course it is you machine and  if you have extra money to replace things with go ahead and do it if you really want to know that badly.
