Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

I bought a 500 watt power supply

\015 Will the 24 hookup be alright with my board Foxconn MCP73M01H1 Motherboard\015

Answers :

Depends on the connector , most newer power supplies have a detachable 4-pin stuck to the side of the 20-pin making it 24. use the whole 24-pin plug if it fits , if you only have a 20 pin connector on the motherbaord, detache the 4-pin from the 24-pin making it 20.
