    Im upgrading my computer to A64 finally, and got my Neo2 Platinum motherboard today. I cant install anything yet because i dont have the heatsink yet, i have the fan, but not the sink (long story). Anyway, i was looking on the motherboard and saw the JPW1 [​IMG] Socket. I realised my psu doesnt have a plug and wondered if it was neccessary. If it is needed, is this the converter i need?

    Thanks in advance

    That might work, but if you're PSU doesnt have a P4 conector it leads me to believe that its not very good...

    It should boot without it since technicly its an "auxilary" cable, but it will be very ubstable so I wouldnt try it.

    I read on another forum, that a guys motherboard popped, and everyone was saying that the reason it popped was because the JPW1 wasnt plugged in. If i hadnt read this, i would of tried it. Ah well, ill get the adapter anyway and try it. Cheers 34erd
