ZH77A-G43 JPWR2 connector
« on: 29-November-12, 20:05:03 »

My power supply has only a 4 pin connector for this socket, other motherboards will work with a 4 pin connector plugged into pins 1, 2, 3 and 4 but I can't find any information about that in the manual, FAQS or here in the forums.

Anyone know?  I'd hate to have to buy a new power supply if I don't have to.

PS, please don't ask about system configuration, the board is in the box, uninstalled.  Eventually it *PROBABLY* will have an i7-2700K installed with 8GB of memory, 2 SATA optical drives and 2 SATA HDs.  I'll probably use the on-board video for now.

No idea, it's running my current PC and I don't want to take it out until I cannibalize it to build the new one.

It's 460 Watts and whatever HP stuck into their Pavilion Elite e9180t CTO.  I can see by looking at the MB on HP's site that the ATX CPU power connector is 4 pin.

I did get an answer from Tech Support that I can use the 4 pin plug in the 8 pin socket, I'm guessing it should be in pins 1, 2, 5 and 6 which are the left most pins, I suppose if I use pins 3, 4, 7 and 8 it wouldn't make any difference?

I also see I can get an adaptor but my understanding is that they don't accomplish anything much?

The psu might be too weak for a modern setup but in general board should post with just 4pins.

How old is that PSU? They degrade over time. It may be unwise to use it in a new build. PSU is not a component to take lightly as it is the 'heart' of the system. Recommend a quality +12V single rail model of adequate amps.
