    They do that to make people buy a psu from them. Dell also does this. Never heard of such an adapter.

    in case anyone else runs into this problem i found a web site (highpowersupply.com) that makes conversion cables for 24 to 20 pin connectors and vice-versa.

    I ordered an EPS12V PSU thinking it was the same as an ATX PSU but later discovered one has a 24 pin connector and the other has the standard 20 pins. Gotta be carefull using that converter becuase I think I read something somewhere online that it can harm you system.
