So, are you going to use a 24 pin cable to go to the motherboard that has 20 pins?
Or, a 20 pin cable to go to the motherboard that has 24 pins?

If you wanna put a 20-pin power supply on a 24-pin motherboard, you'll need an adapter.

If you wanna put a 24-pin power supply on a 20-pin motherboard, it'll work, you just gotta line them up right, which really isn't an issue at all.
