What is the white wire on the 20 pin mobo connector?
« on: October 24, 2004, 03:53:07 AM »

I have an eps (server) power supply.  It has a 24 pin connection so i picked up a 24 pin to 20 pin adapter.  But the adapter doesnt have a white wire, there's no other colored wire in its place, theres just no wire.  What is the white wire?  Do i really need it?

google is your friend, there is no penalty for  searching before posting.

many motherboards do not require the -5v line to function, it is no longer a part of the newest ATX spec, so try it out, it should work
