Let us know how it performs for you
Oh my gosh, this really SUCKS.
I have my new TurboCool 510 Power supply right here in front of me, and I took my whole computer apart, and guess what?
My motherboard i850GB has a 20 pin connection IN ADDITION to a 6 pin flat connection, WHICH THIS POWER SUPPLY DOES NOT HAVE.
I called PCPowerandCooling and they said they used to have this 6 pin connection for old motherboards but NO MORE.
So they said they can either give me credit or custom make a connection for me.
Well what I will do is try my new graphics card on Monday and see if it will work with my exisiting power supply, if not then I will get the custom one made from them.
BE carefull everyone, not all powersupplies work with ALL motherboards.
My motherboard was pretty standard a few years ago, now I am screwed.
