Can any computer knowledgeable person help with a question I have regarding the number of gold pins that are on my Sata connector that is part of my PSU.
As we know there are meant to be 15 pins, but on the Sumvision PSU there are only 12 with 3 slots vacant.
It's isn't a fault with the PSU as I checked out another PSU of the same brand and it too has three vacant with a total of 12 pins
If you look at numerous images on-line of a sata connector if you are lucky enough you will see 15 pins, in fact another brand of PSU today revealed 15 pins.
So is it that Sumvision have built their PSU in a way that it doesn't require those particular 3 pins in that particular section of the Sata connector?
I wont be actually using the Sata connector but I am just curious about this that's all.
