    ASrock dual sata2

    Hi, im about to upgrade, and i'm pretty sure i'll get an opty 146/8 and and ASRock dual SATA2
    mobo. However, i have an Antec Neo HE430 psu, and i didnt work with my old motherboard because of the atx2.2 spec thingymajig and the 20pin+4pin thing. well anyway i was wondering if anybody else had this combination and knows if this psu works with this motherboard?
    Thanks for your help!

    why that board mate? if its for future upgrade to PCI-E then i doubt your PSU will work anyway. the board needs a volt mod and unofficial bios for more than 275 FSB btw

    i have the board - set-up for a 20pin PSU with the 4 pin. i don't know the exact specs of your PSU, but if you don't have an extra 4 pin cable coming off your PSU (in addition to the 20 pin cable), then I would not recommend using it with the board... (P.S I'm using an Antec 380W PSU v.happily with the board).

    I don't have this combination, but I really suspect it will be fine.

    The PSU has the following connections right?:
    6 x 4 pin internal power
    4 x 15 pin Serial ATA power
    1 x 6 pin PCI Express power
    1 x power 24 pin main output
    1 x power 4 pin ATX12V connector

    If so you will need a 24->20 pin connector for this motherboard. I have the same problem but I can confirm that there are no problems using such a connector. Use the 24->20pin adaptor for the main power rail, and plug the 4pin ATX12V connector in the seperate 4pin 12v plug on the motherboard.

    It's a great board and should work well with that PSU.

    EDIT: if the 24pin connector is actually a 20+4 pin, then you don't need an adaptor at all - just use the 20pin portion of the cable and ignore the +4 bit.
