Default 20 pin with amd

Hey, On my PSU I only have a 20 pin connector and I have a AMD Atholon 3200+ plus. I was just wondering if thats safe because I have a 24 pin slot and I just have the 20 pin connector in it.

You out a 20 pin PSU in a 24pin motherboard?

There is a reason for it having the 4 extra pins... I would say no.
