    I only have two square four pin ones left one labelled p4 and one p4+ the PCI express one plugs into the card. Do I use one of these. Sorry I am being a real pain.

    Good question - I'll check its manual for you (if it's available online.)

    edit: OK it's 50MB for the product brochure - Tagan your website needs a little work!

    There are two required motherboard connectors.

    1: The 24 pin one (or 20+4pin ones if your psu splits it.)

    2: The additional 4 pin one to the right of this to power the Voltage Regulator Module (VRM).

    As said, its important you dont put the 4 pin one joined to the 20pin one in the VRM connector. Its hard to explain, but its outlined on page 58 of the pdf manual.

    Im not sure which one of your spare connectors your supposed to put in. The manual says it for a +12v 4 Pin connector. My psu only had one available. Are you sure one of those spare 4 pin connectors is not for a PCI express graphics card?

    I have a Tagan 480W PSU. The Tagan comes with two square 4-pin +12V connectors (joined together so you'll need to separate them). You need to connect the P4 lead to the 12V 4-pin connector on your motherboard. Don't connect the related connector labelled P4+ - leave that unconnected.

    The Tagan comes with a PCI-Express Y-shaped power adaptor. Coming out of the Tagan you will see two thick grey cables labelled VGA/HDD. Both of these end in 4-pin molex connectors. Plug both of these into the PCI-Express Y-shaped adapter and connect the other end of this adapter (6-pin) into your PCI-Express graphics card.

    Now plug the connector labelled P4 from your Tagan to the square 4-pin connector on your mobo labelled 12V or P4 (not sure what it will be called on your mobo).

    As Fresco says, do not use the 4-pin power connector attached to the big 20-pin connector to do this! There is a separate 4-pin connector labelled P4 as you observed in a previous post - use this for the P4/12V mobo connector.
