|I have a Visionman Widow PC with an ASUS PSKPL-CM motherboard. I bought a Corsair750M &50W Modular PSU as a replacement for the original HEC 580W PSU. Having installed a similar PSU in my other PC, I expected the install to be a snap. All was going well until I realized that the modular connectors did not include a small cable (black and white twisted wires) with a small three-hole connector that plugged into a white, three-pin male "something" on the motherboard, near the CPU. After doing a little online research, I think it was a connection to run a fan, however, at the time, I was concerned that it might be something critical. So, I disconnected the new PSU, reinstalled the old one, and returned the new Corsair PSU to Best Buy.|
Due to my limited experience installing PSUs, I now wonder if there was a cable I might have purchased that would have had the correct 3-pin female connector on one and and a 4-pin male connector on the other that I could have plugged into an available 4-pin connector? I suppose what I need is some advice as to what it is I am looking for and what it's properly called? And also whether or not I would have had the missing cable/connector if I had not bought a modular PSU?
I can provide a PDF of my motherboard in which I have circled the 3-pin connector on the motherboard. I also circled another 4-hole female connector on the motherboard that requires a 4-pin plug, but here again, I wasn't quite sure which 4-pin connector to use. As I said, my attempt to install the Corsair PSU into the Visionman Widow wasn't as easy as the other install I did of a Corsair PSU into a newer HP desktop.
Well, I hope I've explained the problem adequately and hope someone will be good enough to provide some answers and pointers. Thanks very much!
