Guide to Connecting Computer Power Supply to Motherboard

Step 9: Connect ATX 24/20-Pin Computer
Power Supply Cable to Motherboard

Align the clip of the ATX 24/20-pin connector with the notch in the plug and safely and firmly clip it in place. New motherboards now use the 24-pin connector instead of the 20-pin.

The newer CPUs use an extra 4 or 8-pin 12-volt connector on the motherboard. Ensure that the relevant cable is attached to this connector on the mainboard.
