Re: Problem with Mobo Power Connector

Just a quick shameless bump.

I have the 10-pin connector from the Dell PSU. Think I could just wire it using the wires for the 8-pin on the new PSU?

Re: Problem with Mobo Power Connector

5402

Could I simply modify it to be a 10-pin, then wire the additional two pins in parallel?

Or is there a chance the amperage could drop too much?

Re: Time for a new rig, suggestions?

I wasn't entirely sure if I could use DDR3 1600, because looking at the MOBO it says: Memory Standard - DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1333/1066. So it can use DDR3 1600 then?

If so, I'll probably get...
