Yes. A 20-pin connector will still fit in the board and the system will still work although you may not provide the necessary current for expansion slots etc.

Note that 20/4 and 24 pin PSUs both have a 24 pin motherboard connector. Those desiganated as having 20/4 or 20+4 can be separated to connect with a 20 pin ATX connector. Many listed as simply 24 pin can also be separated.
