Ah, sorry. I should've explained that more thoroughly Like I said in my first reply, you need all those power connectors in - plus the ones for optical drive(s) and hard drive(s).

If you need any more help, feel free to ask

It's not working when I plug inside the atx_cpu I don't know what to do

I think I fried my mobo I had the 20+4 4 pins inside the atx_cpu socket initially the first time, because instructions were unclear. Do you guys think that would fry the mobo?

Do not double post. You have been warned.

The socket with 24 holes needs the 24 pin plug, this will either be a solid 24 pin plug or a 20 pin plug with a detachable 4 pin extra. There is also a separate socket to power the cpu, this will either be 4 or 8 pins. It would really take quite an effort to get it wrong
