    A-Bit KD7 Power Connectors

    Hi

    I've had this board a while (A-Bit KD7-S) and its always been fine, I have howver wondered what the small four pin power connector is. I've always plugged it in anyway, even though I didn't know what it was. I always thought it was a Pentium thing even though its an AMD board. However on a recent upgrade (new PSU) i forgot to plug it in, and everything SEEMED to work fine. Can anyone tell me what this plug does and if I need it plugged in?

    Thanks
    Falcon

    Just extra 12V wires into the board. It distributes to current over more wires, which becomes necessary as the things draw more power.

    I would. I had a faulty connection in the 4 pin plug you mention on my board and it kept shutting down.
