I'm trying to replace the 300W power supply that came with my Dell Inspiron 580 with a 430W Corsair CX430. The motherboard has two connections, a 24-pin connection and a 4-pin molex. The Corsair has a 24-pin connection, but doesn't have a 4-pin molex. It has an 8-pin plug that can be separated into 2 square 4-pin plugs, and a 6-pin plug that has a separate 2-pin plug right next to it. Can I connect one of these plugs into the socket where the 4-pin molex went or do I need to get a different power supply?
You use the EPS/ATX12V 8-pin connector, that separates into 2 x 4-pin connectors and use either one of the 4-pin sections.
