    When did this new standard come out?
    The TX750 is a great PSU and has the ATX 12volt 8 pin plug.

    The TX750 has two four pin plugs but the shape of the pins is different on one side. I was afraid of having it plugged in but tried since and it did not burn up, but I still can not get XP loaded on with this motherboard.

    What is your issue with XP?

    Yes, but sure you are not confusing the ATX 20+ (4) << pin for a 4Pin ATX 12V plug

    You should have a 8Pin (EPS/ATX12V 8-4 pin ) as shown above and as you see here on Corsair spec's page (Click Resources Tab)>>>

    My issue with installing XP was trying to get it on a striped raid array. I was using a floppy for the raid driver, F6, it would load the driver, I would format the the raid drive, XP would start to load and then go back to the floppy for the driver to load onto the hard drive and it would say the driver was not there. I tried different floppies, floppy drives and cables and it would do the same thing every time.

    That is when I decided to try the other 4 pin plug in as well, but from reading other posts I also learned how to slipstream the install with nLite so I did not need the floppy and now XP is installed and running fine.

    The 4 pin plugs really worried me at first. The shape of one 4 pin plug is the same as the motherboard but the other is a different shape even though it fits easily. Now I know they are compatible. No where did I find the statement you made that the EPS and ATX12V 8-4 pin were the same thing and the manual for the power supply does not have pin outs listed.

    Now I am trying to find info on fan control on this motherboard. It seems that all fan headers are 3 or 4 pin but there is no setup for any fan except the CPU. On my old motherboard an ABit AT832X, which I am using now, I have the rear fan controlled by the CPU temp. I have tried Speedfan but this motherboard is too new. Any suggestions?

    Just for the record;
    Motherboard - GA-EP45-UD3P
    Power Supply - Corsair TX750
    Hard drives - 2 75 gig Raptors
    Video - ATI X1900 Crossfire

    Were you choosing the correct driver by name when it showed you the list of drivers on that driver?

    Ahh... Sorry! I see you got it installed! 4 and 8 Pin are not the SAME thing, what made you say that? They both can be used though, if that is what you meant

    You should be able to use EasyTune to control your case and CPU Fan.

    Speedfan, ya that is a waste on any board I think

    the protective cover is on 1,2,5 and 6?

    are the extra pins there to allow use of a second 12v rail?

    my understanding is that the 750TX has one 'massive' 12-v rail, therefore, can the 750TX be used with the 4-pin connector for an Intel Extreme processor and/or overclocking?

    here is the 750TX connectors pic from Newegg:

    update: my 750TX will be waiting for me when I return from assignment! Corsair site shows a 8-pin 12v connector!

    It's Either/Or as far as I know.
    The older Corsair's like mine had both, 4 and 8pin - but the new one's like yours have a "Split - able" 8 pin, ie 2x4pin. It can be used for both.

    Ideally use all 8pins if the MB allows, if not, slide/unclip the plug for 4 pin 12v atx equipped motherboards. Essentially it splits in half.

    As for Extreme CPU's. Some motherboard manufacturers suggest that when they have an ATX 12v 8 pin socket, that it is used for the Intel Extreme Cpu etc, although it is suggested that using half the socket (ie only 4 pins) is sufficient for lower Power CPU's - ie the mainstream.
    Of course there are motherboards that are designed for overclocking and that will support the likes of the 135watt Core™ 2 Extreme QX9770 - like my board, which incidently has only the 4pin 12volt ATX connector.

    8 Pins are preferable, but may not be absolutely neccessary.
