OK a Stupid Question NEVEMIND I figured it out
Im new to the world of Amd 64 and the current Motherboards.
I've been to broke to but anything new for a couple of years. I just got a Asus A8N-VM CSM<GREEN>and this is the Wierd part this guy at the computer shop gave me a AMD 939 3500+ chip that someone had given to him. That's something you dont see every day huh? Ok what I'm getting to is this. I wanted to test this chip just to see if it posts and i laide the board on my workbench and put the cpu heatsync and a stick of ram on it. I have an older power supply it didnt fit the powerplug on the motherboard it was short 4 or 6 pins and I didnt have the 6 pin plug for the others socket either. Will it not post with these missing. Im guessing it wont but i want to check so I dont have to worry about buying another CPU.
I read the manual DUh huh. It wont boot without the 4 pin ATX 12V Power plug.
