550w Power Supply Installation


How to properly connect the new 550 Watt PSU on expansion board.
We used four form factors of expansion boards on this tutorial.
PE6R4-I, 7slot, 13slot and EB7 boards.

The expansion backplane has a ATX slot for the 20 pin connector. The new 500 and 550 power supplies have 24pin ATX power connector, which works OK with the 20pin slot of the expansion backplane

The male ATX connector on the power supply has a wide locking tab, make sure this tab aligns with the tab on the female ATX connector. Note that the break away 4pin portion of the ATX connector sits on the right side when the connectors are mated.
