Hello & Welcome to TSF: :wave:



You could put your 20 pin connector into your 24 pin motherboard and it will fire up just align the snap lock and it will be ok

however a 350 watt power supply is VERY under sized to run a more updated motherboard spec (which yours must be or it wouldnt be a 24 pin)


please give us your full ssytem specs and we can make some recommendations for your

Hello



I would look to replace your current PSU with a unit such as the Antec Trio 550 watt

or

Corsair VX-550 watt

Antec Earth watts 500 watt

Corsair HX-520 watt >>>>>>> best one here !


what country are you in ?
