Just bought a great power supply of course all the specs were not there and guess what it has a 12 pin cable and I have a 10 pin plug on my mother board. I have searched the we and I find a 24pin to a 20 pin converter but is there a 12 pin to a 10 pin converter out there?

Anyone know?

if you do know where I can get it?

Thank you ?

Hello and welcome to geekstogo,
There is no such thing as a 12pin connector. I'm assuming you mean 12 on the bottom row but add the top with it and you get 24pins.
This 24 pin connector can be split into a 20pin connector, look closely, there will be a division on one of the ends which will enable you to break off 4 of the 24pins.

As James said,, and you might not have to actually break the extra ends off.

The plug will go together, you will just have a couple of the extra pins hanging off to one side.

(I just did one the other day) :)
