Almost all of the new power supplies used today feature a 24-pin power connector to connect to a computer motherboard. However, some motherboards still feature a 20-pin ATX power connection. Thankfully, almost all 24-pin power connectors are designed so that four of the pins can be detached or moved out of the way.

Can 20 pin PSU work 24 pin motherboard?

“… you can plug a 20 pin cable into a 24 pin motherboard and it will work just fine. At least, it will for a while. They added those extra 4 pins for a reason.
