PSU upgrade for Ati Radeon HD3850

So... I bought this Corsair 600W CX V2 Builder Series, ATX-virtalähde, 80Plus | 65.00e - Jimms.fi Which has 24 pins and my motherboard is 20 pins [ATX]. I am thinking of sending it back to Jimms for refund. I want to buy a new one for my new pc case [PSU: , standard PS/2 -power supply slot].

So for the Ati Radeon HD3850 and my motherboard is: Google-kuvahaun tulos kohteessa http://www.ourtech.co.uk/shop/aceraspir-1326811772-16850.jpg

This should not be necessary. The last 4 pins in the connector should detach, turning your 24pin connector into a 20 pin connector.

If that doesn't work, you can get an adapter to switch from 24pin to 20 pin

I don't really know... I don't even know where i put the cables in what slot xD, and i've seen in some of the PSU's there is 20 pins & 20 + 4 pins & 24pins. And that Corsair what i got is 24 pin

These connectors only plug in 1 way. You cannot plug them into the wrong spot.

Here are some items explaining a bit on what I am suggesting

i understand. usually you just unhook the last 4 pins from the connector in your power supply, plug the 20 pins into your mobo and just leave the 4 pin extras just dangling there.

Your power supply has the following connections

Liitännät:
- 1 x 24pin ATX (This goes to motherboard, and you disconnect the 4 pins at the end to make it a 20 pin connection)
- 1 x 8pin ATX 12V (this optionally goes to a single or double 4 pin ATX power connection on mobo. Usually a single 4 pin) (may not use at all)

- 2 x 6+2pin PCI-E (this goes to video cards)
- 6 x SATA (these plug into SATA drives)
- 4 x Molex (these plug into fans and hard drives/optical drives with molex connectors)
- 1 x Floppy (this goes to floppy)

This is how the atx cable looks like: Google-kuvahaun tulos kohteessa http://www.nordichardware.com/skrivelser_img/432/psu.atx.jpg

Here is a 20 pin + 4 pin connector and you can see this disconnects



And here is a mobo with a 4 pin ATX plug in addition to the 20/24 pin ATX connector
