Mike89 Posted May 12, 2006 Posted May 12, 2006 I read all the hubba on the 20/24 pin thread that ended up getting closed. I have a question I didn't see addressed in that thread. The 20 to 24 pin adapters I have seen simply leave the other 4 pins empty. Why can't a 20 to 24 pin adapter be made that just takes the 12v, 3v, 5v, ground (which I understand that's what the extra 4 pins are) from the existing 20 pins and duplicate them in the appropriate 4 extra pins? Would this not solve the problem? All the proper voltage would then be in ALL of the 24 pins instead of in just 20 of them. Of course I'm talking about if the 20 pin power supply has the appropriate wattage to begin with like say a 550 watt. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
