ANTEC 850W - Question
 
Alright, kinda upset with myself for not looking first but don't know how many times I've ever seen this either.

The 4 (or 8 pin connector for the top of the motherboard, sorry I forget exact name of that part at the moment), is usually in :: or :::: format... and most of the PSU's I own are Corsair and I can choose whether its :: or :::: Well this PSU has :::: and no way to seperate it lol so won't work on the MOBO I have that only needs ::

Is there some sort of adapter we can buy to convert the :::: into ::? Sorry if this is confusing. At work so trying to type fast.

So long as there is room for it to overhang you can still plug it in. Just pick the side that has the 4 correctly keyed connections and in it goes.

Tried but there's a couple stupid parts on the mobo that won't let it fit properly (can't push it down to click)

Dang it!

You can use a 4-pin extension, it will plug into your 8-pin on the PSU and into the 4-pin on the mobo.

Most 850w PSU come with two 8-pin CPU connectors one of which splits in two, I'm surprised your Antec dosn't.

Which Antec model is the PSU...
