    Page 27 in your motherboard user manual shows that the lower portion of the 8-pin connector is used with a 4-pin ATX_12v connector.
    Look closely at the diagram and you'll see that pins 1,2,5 and 6 in the lower portion have a different layout than the upper 4 pins.

    Thanks all :)

    I put in the Seasonic 430 and the PC automatically went into "Corrupt BIOS ... fixing ..." etc.

    I then went to F11 for current and backup BIOS. No hardware probs so far.
    But will not use "Sleep" again anytime soon, although I so long for it...
    I guess you would want to advise me to now try the X660 again, "for the fun of it"...?

    But besides the tremendous hassle of pulling out the mobo each time, I feel that just knowing it will not pull me out of a corrupt BIOS is enough to not want it anymore, even if it should now work again for normal use. So I'll give that back to the vendor and let him test it. I hope he finds it faulty and gets me a working one, cause it still would be one of the ideal PSU's for me. Just hoping it's faulty and not some incompatibility.

    I wish I had a short piece of cable for the CPU wire that I can leave in the board and not have to pull the board out for trials like these.
    Am I right that this is advised against though? (seem to have read that here or somewhere)
    (yes, I know I can leave the whole board out until everything works, but still...)

    OFF TOPIC:
    The last time the PC shut down was in a Firefox session. Even after resetting it, safe start, completely removing everything I can find of it and reinstalling, it is still loading unusably slow, while IE is working as normal. So it must be using something from the system that IE is not using. It seems that will be another long effort to get it fixed... If any clues, TIA.

    Even the best power supply can have problems.
    It's possible that a poor cable connection with your X-660 psu was causing the problem.
    The slow booting problem might be related to having additional usb drives installed while booting.
    It's possible that one or more specific usb devices (e.g. wi-fi adapter, game controller, etc.) might cause the slow booting.
    You can try booting with a PS/2 keyboard and no mouse to see if it boots faster.

    Yeah, I figured this was possible w the X660. I usually seat everything 2 or 3 times to make sure no coats or oxydation remain. But it's a bit uninviting with these hard to remove connectors.
    But the previous cursor freezes may have had to do with an unstable voltage maybe...

    I guess it's also possible that the boot loops damaged the PSU (although I only had somewhere between 12 and 30 of 'em)

    I have no slow booting problem. It's Firefox that's loading websites extremely slow or not even.

    It's unlikely that the frequent boots damaged your power supply.
    Let your vendor thoroughly check out your X-660 to ensure that everything is OK.
    With my P35 dual core system and wireless connection, FireFox 3.6.28 typically takes about 90 seconds to load about 60+ open tabs.
    I'll be updating to the newest current version once I find an add-on similar to Tab Kit to manage and organize my open tabs.

    I usually have at least 60 tabs. It's amazing how fast they load with this system and an SSD... I had no idea the internet could be so fast.
    Well, normally...
    All worked perfectly with >20 extensions as well, but now hardly anything is loading after the mid-session crash of last week...

    I'll try the Mozilla forum, but they'll probably advise to do a Windows repair or something.
