I'm trying to give the motherboard power, and I'm confused. The 24 pin ATX cable is the one in question. I plugged the end with 24 pins into the motherboard, but the other end (the one that connects to the PSU), has two connectors. My question is do I need to use both? Or should I just plug the larger of the two in?

If your Mobo has two connection use both from the PSU. if your Mobo has one connection then use one from the PSU.

Re: Having trouble with Corsair AX850

Thats not what I'm confused about. The motherboard requires two cable in one for the MB, and one for the CPU. The CPU part I took care of. The 24 pin that goes into the motherboard, the end that goes into the PSU splits. Should I plug both parts into the PSU?

I assume you are referring to the 20+4 pin connector to the Mobo? If so, yes, they all need to be connected.

The 20+4 is connected into the motherboard, but the other end, the one that connects to the PSU splits. One end has 18 pins, the other 10 pins. Should I plug both of these into the PSU. Or just the 18 pin end?

Can you post a pic of the 18 + 10 pin connector?

Re: Having trouble with Corsair AX850

Tyree, I took care of this issue, thank you. The only thing now concerning me is all the RAM not posting, and the SSD not posting, but thats another thread.
