Good day all
I have a k7s7-ag ver.1.5 motherboard, socket A, the motherboard has the 4 pin power plug that I have seen on the Pentium 4 motherboards, I told the dealer I wanted a new PSU for this motherboard and he told me I needed this 4 pin plug, my system is up and running without the plug plugged in, I am just curious if it would improve performance or cook the cpu?
Thanks for your thoughts.

If it were me, I would download the mobo manual and see if I could figure out what that plug is supposed to be for.

It will not harm the cpu

I had done that, In the beginning of the manual it said I did not need to use it, then later when it was telling me how to install the cpu it said to plug it in. That's why i came here to see if there was anyone smarter than me or the manual. /wacko.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wacko:" border="0" alt="wacko.gif" />

Thanks for the reply, do you know if there will be any performance increases by using it? I have some nasty latency issues with this setup that's why I am so curious about this plug

Thanks to everyone who has replied

It just applies power closer to the processor, helps to deal with long traces from the power section elswhere on the board, also provides a dedicated power section for the processor.

Thank you very much MD Willington, now I know that is not the issue with my latency.
Appreciate it much.
