  • Need MOBO help ITX

    okay so I had to replace a MOBO in a little micro desktop....the problem is the 24 pin power plug in....its like tiny?


    This is the MOBO
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813500044

    and here are actual pics







    is there an adapter or something? if there is that would be cool as hell since the cable from the power supply is 1/2 " short.

    Also the power supply does not have the other 4 pin plug that would also power the MOB O?....is it even necessary?

    Not an expert so wait for more opinions but I believe you would need a new PSU unless there is some adapter that can turn one of the plugs into the 4 pin CPU plug. They do sell 20 to 24 pin adapters but again I think the lack of a 4 pin cpu line may be the bigger problem.

      I am not familiar with the form factor of the smaller plug.

      What is the model of the computer or better yet the original motherboard. Finding that you then need to look for documentation on the form factor and wiring of the power plug. It may be as simple as finding an adapter for that form factor or you may cut the small plug loose and wire on a bigger one once you identify which wire is which.

      I think you can try running the system without the dedicated 4 pin CPU plug.

        Dear god...you must have a HP Slimline desktop. I thought they stopped using that old trick to deter people from upgrading those SFF rigs.

        You're going to need a new PSU and more than likely a mATX form factor PSU unless you don't mind having a normal ATX form factor PSU hanging outside your case some place.

        Trivia: Last I knew, Delta Electronics was the OEM PSU for the HP Slimline rigs and they specifically put in a "small" 20/24-pin ATX PSU plug at the request of HP.

        Ack, never mind...looks like I found one:

        http://www.atxpowersupplies.com/24-p...-converter.php

        Converts a HP 24 pin to a 20+4 pin ATX connector. It's also $16 + some shipping and handling charge. Ouch...it's not cheap, but better than forking over $40+ for a nice mATX PSU for your rig.

          That definitely looks like one of those shrunken connectors from HP. Acreo's linked adapter should fix the issue for you.
