I have a problem: I don't think my old
power supply works with the my new motherboard:
motherboard: Asus P5KC
Power supply: Mutant Mod reactor ATXPOW480BLU

What I mean by not compatible is that the P8P9 connector (I don't know
if it's still called like that, but it used to be), not the ATX, but
the other one, has 20 connectors on the power supply and 24 on the
motherboard. I can plug it right, but there are 4 connectors with
nothing in it on the Motherboard. How do I know if it's safe?
