20pin PSU on 24pin board

Hello,

Just got an MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum mootherboard. It has a 24pin PSU connector. In the manual it says:
"You may use the 20-pin ATX power supply as you like. If
you’d like to use the 20-pin ATX power supply, please plug your
power supply along with pin 1 & pin 13"

What are the disadvantages of useing this 20pin PSU on this board?

Should I use a 20 to 24 pin converter, or just leave it be?

Thanks,

M

None that I can find...just get your pin orientation correct.

apparently, this is better to use that..
But this is the opposite case to yours it seems... I read it again carefully.
so this is the case for a PSU with 24pins and a mbd connector with 20pins.

So, in your, you have a mbd with a 24pins connector... and a normal PSU with 24pins ?
In this case, you don't have to take care about anything.

Because, now, most of the new PSU for ATX are using 24pins...

But if you have a PSU with 20 connectors, just do as they mention in the manual.

I have another link for you : http://www.trustedreviews.com/article.aspx?art=522%20 (there is at the beginning a part of the explanation for the 20 pins and 24 pins)

Sorry for the confusion
