Default PSU Connectors

I have a question. I have found a motherboard for my friend. The only problem is it is a 24 pin PSU connector. The only PSU I have is a 20 pin. Will the PSU still work? and will a 24 pin PSU work with a 20 pin motherboard (just for the info). Thanks.

Erm, i'm not 100% sure, but I think some, not all motherboards will support 20 pin (and 24 if they new enough)....My PSU is a 20 pin and my motherboard has 24 pin as well but it's working fine..

If it says "Requirements: 24 Pin PSU Connector" and you have a 20 pin. Then no. They have CHEAP 20 +4 pin PSU connectors out there. That's what i would recommend buying though, a 20 +4 pin connector, that way you're compatible with any motherboard out there.
