Amd64&nf4 Sli Mobo Psu Problem - Help!

Hi guys,

I recently did quite a big upgrade to my system and forked out on an Asus NForce4 SLI mobo with an AMD64 3500 CPU and new PCI express.

 

Now everything went well when putting it all together but now I seem to have hit a brick wall and need urgent help.

 

I bought a new 500wat PSU last year and thought this would be fine to use with my new mobo but when it came to connecting it up I discovered that the main power cable(long one with lots of wires) was 4 pins too short! I guessed I needed a special type of PSU for this mobo but after looking through the manual im stumped if I can find any info on what I should be looking for!

 

all I can find in the manual is something about it being EATX or something, trouble is I cant find any PSUs that provide this. Am I looking in the wrong place?

 

please help me!!

 

EDIT: Problem Solved NM

Don't panic you can keep your existing stuff, just need to buy a 20pin to 24 pin adapter. I had the same issue and it solved it right away. Do make sure you get it going the right way tho, 20 pin to 24pin

 

dabs.com stock them amongst a few others.

note guys the 20 to 24 pin connector does work but will not bring out the full performance of the mobo. I would get that adapter for the time being and then when Antec or Enermax release a 24 pin psu to get one from them.
