To meet expansion requirements, it is recommended that a power supply that can withstand
high power consumption be used (500W or greater). If a power supply is used that does not
provide the required power, the result can lead to an unstable or unbootable system.
• The main power connector is compatible with power supplies with 2x10 power
connectors. When using a 2x12 power supply, remove the protective cover from the
main power connector on the motherboard. Do not insert the power supply cable into pins
under the protective cover when using a 2x10 power supply.
