Motherboard is a Chaintech (AMD 64 bit 939 system). There is a 24 pin and a 4 pin connector on the motherboard but my powersupply only has a 20 pin and the 4 pin connectors. After some google searching, I found that it is usually okay to connect a 20 pin into a 24 pin connector. So I proceeded like this and the PC posts but the CPU fan shuts off after a couple seconds so I just turn the power off.

I will probably end up trying to get another power supply, I just wanted to see if this is normal for this situation?
