My System Specs


On cheaper motherboards with 4 pin CPU power (Vice 8 Pin) ensure that you line up the latch mech between the connector and recepticle. I've only seen it once, but I had a board where the recepticle was rotated 45deg off of what I was used to, and to top it all off the recepticle was sloppy enough that it wasn't idiot proof.

Fortunately all it did was cause a no post as opposed to doing any damage to the mobo / components.
