Stranger Than Fiction
Okay so I bought a new Thermaltake 500w PSU. I start to hook it up when I realize that it's an ATX 2.0 model with the 24 pin MB plug and all I have is a 20 pin MB. I know they sell adapters so I went to order one when I came across a review saying "Don't buy this, just find the seam on the plug and clip off the extra 4 pins. Works everytime." This seems WAAAAY to easy (and kinda dangerous) but there were several posts agreeing with the dude who said it. So what do you think... Clip it or spend the $5 bucks on an adapter? $5 is no issue its just I've been without my machine for over a week now and I want this DONE ... I'm going through gamers withdrawl!
