I'm gettin ready to order, and I was going through one last time checking stuff to make sure
everything was compatible before sending away my hard earned money. Now I was glancing over this gigabyte motherboard, and I looked at the power connector. It has 20 pin, and 24 pin kinda. The last 4 pins are capped off with a black thing. I was wondering what kind of compatibilty action was going on here.
Here's what I've assumed on my own, correct me if I'm wrong.
I think 24 pin PSU's are compatible with 20 pin.
I know 20 pin is compatible with all 20 pin.
I Know the 24 pin is compatible with the 24 pin.
But the question is... are 24 pin PSU's compatible with this 'capped' 24 pin connector? The black thing looks highly removable. Do these ports serve a function if they were originally capped? Will the motherboard be fully
functional with only a 20 port power unit?
