Yes you can. They are keyed so you can't f*** it up either. Many 24 Pin plugs can be split into a 20 an 4 pin connector for this sort of thing but it is only needed when the mobo has a cap in the way.

afaik you do not NEED them, its only if the mobo has 24 do you need them. The last 4 should be partially separated because not all motherboard need 24.

I've seen 24 to 20 pin convertors for when you have solid 24 pin plugs.
Might find it useful in this case. Try Jaycar

cheers. might get one. i plugged it in, with 4 pins hanging off to the side and the atx power too, still doesnt boot. just fan spins for a second.

not confident this is plugged in correctly, although it seems like there is only one way it can be.

Well you have to ask yourself did you get the overhang of the 4 pins of the correct side of the connector. That or the boards fuxored

Do you have the separate 6-pin CPU power connector also plugged in?

i came home to my main PC doing this. Wouldn't boot, just spun the fan, turned off, spun the fan, turned off, over and over. Reset CMOS, all is well again. Try a CMOS reset and / or reseat of CPU / RAM.

Thing is if the board is using a 20pin chances are high its old so why waste the time and effort

mooby, what is that 4 pin molex connector there for? Have you checked your mobo manual to see if that needs to be plugged in also?
