ATX power connectors are designed to connect a computer’s power supply to an ATX motherboard. They are constructed of metal pins laid throughout a nylon matrix. A female type ATX power connector extends from the ATX power supply to plug into the motherboard. The nylon matrix on modern ATX power connectors can have 20 or 24 pins, depending on the power necessary for the processor.
The ATX power connector also offers another benefit. Unlike older power connectors , the ATX power connector is designed to only be plugged in one orientation.
