Stranger Than Fiction
I'm putting together my roommates new system tonight. Its going to fly if it works. The problem is IF. He's got as ATX 2.0 PSU, its got the 24 pin connector which I hooked to the board, a 4 pin that is also attached to the board and a mystery 8 pin that goes nowhere. The manual says its for PCI Express, but I cant see any hook ups for it. The cards (2x 6600GT) have no connectors, which I thought they were supposed to so I'm not sure if is just there "in case" or what. Also he's got a SATA hd ... and no jumper on the back of it, the pins are there but no rubber thingy. It's been nearly a year since I hooked up my SATA hd and I can't remember is this is correct or not. He got OEM parts instead of retail so that could explain it. I'm just not sure about it, I'd hate to destroy a bunch of equipment over something dumb like that. Any ideas?
