    I am installing my DB75EN motherboard and have an issue with the powersupply hookup and could use some guidance.


      This is my first build and I bought my power Supply as it was said to match up with the DB75EN.  I obtained a Thermaltake TR2 600 and it does not have the 4 pin 12 volt Power Connector. (ATX-CPU).  I got a little confused with the Thermaltake hook up instructions as it references the 20 and 24 pin Main Power Connector.  The TR2 has a 24 pin power connector.  Is the power to the Motherboard supplied through the 24 pin connector or does it still require the 4 pin ATX-CPU pin also?  I am starting with this forum as it seems the most logical place to begin.  Thermaltake instructions makes it confusing so that is also why am I starting here.  Thermaltake says "if the board requires the 4 pin ATX-CPU connector that you are to "detach a 4 pin connector from the 4+4pin ATX 12V connector and connect it to the Motherboard." It further says "either one of the 4+4 pin form the 4+4pin ATX 12V connector will work."


      Does this mean to dismantle a connector and plug the pins only into the ATX-CPU plug?  If so not Problem I can handle that.  I actually have a 4 pin connector plug handy from an old Power Supply that I was able to scavenger.  I just don't want to mess this up.


      Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.
