Following a recent purchase, an Antec Basiq 500W Power supply (BP500U) I came across an issue that made me stop installing it and put the old one back in for a while.
My motherboard takes 3 forms of power from the old PSU;
The 24 Pin Power Adapter
A 4 Pin Power Adapter
and here's the odd one, what I have, through google, identified as a P8 AT on it's own.
The problem is, my Antec PSU did not come with a P8 AT Connector.
I took a picture of the connector to show you which one I mean. I apologize for the terrible quality. I will try to take a better photo soon, my phone is not too good at handling any light other than fully bright. :P
My PC is not exactly all that power hungry, it runs a humble core 2 quad, a couple of hard drives a GTX650 Ti and a D-Link Wireless Xtreme N PCI card. Would my PC need this slot connected in order to run? Are there any risks to switching it on without this connector installed?
Thanks for your help!
