Windows 7: Power Supply

Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1
 
 

A little Googling suggests that your motherboard is similar to these:

Foxconn - Products: Motherboard

Both have the four pin 12V CPU power connectors (near the CPU socket). Motherboards with more power-hungry CPUs have eight pin 12V connectors.

Some motherboards that supported dual graphics cards (SLI or Crossfire) had a Molex connector (as used on PATA drives) for supplemental power when both cards were used, but I don't recall when I last saw that. Not an issue here, at any rate (board has a single PCI-E X16 slot).
