How to Connect Your PSU Cables to Your Motherboard

How to Connect Your PSU Cables

In this blog post, we will be discussing how to connect your PSU cables to your motherboard. We will be walking you through the process step-by-step so that you can get your computer up and running as quickly and easily as possible.

The first thing you need to do is locate the 24-pin PSU connector on your motherboard. This is typically located near the upper-right corner of the board. Once you have found the connector, insert the smaller 4-pin portion of the cable into the connector. Next, align the wider 24-pin portion of the cable with the connector and push it down until it is fully seated. The cable should now be securely connected to the motherboard and look like a single unit.

The next step is to locate the 20-pin connector on your motherboard. This is typically located near the lower-left corner of the board. Once you have found the connector, insert the 20-pin cable into the connector such that its key is aligned properly. The cable should now be securely connected to the motherboard.

The final step is to connect the 4-pin CPU power cable to its corresponding connector on the motherboard. This is typically located near the upper-left corner of the board, close to where the CPU is located. Once you have found the connector, insert the 4-pin CPU power cable into it and make sure that it is securely seated.

PC power supply connections

Any avid PC builder or gamer knows that having the right power supply connections are critical to a well-functioning system.

For the main system board, the ATX 20 Pin Main Power Connector and ATX 24 Pin Main Power Connector deliver power to the CPU and other components.

The 4-Pin Peripheral Power Connector is essential for powering devices like optical drives and fans, while the 4 Pin Peripheral to SATA Cable Assembly allows data and power to be transferred between devices.

The SATA Power Connector is also vital for connecting hard drives and SSDs.

The 4-Pin ATX +12V Power Connector is used to provide additional power to high-end graphics cards, while the 8 Pin EPS +12V Power Connector is used for processors that require more power.

Finally, the 6-Pin PCI Express Power Connector is used to provide power to PCI Express cards like graphics cards. Without these various power supply connectors, a PC would not be able to function properly.

Now that you have followed these steps, your PSU cables should be properly connected to your motherboard and you can now power on your computer.
