I've had the good luck of being donated an ASUS motherboard with a dual core cpu.
I've no idea what the cpu is since its not been fitted/fired up yet because I'd like to find out more before I start slotting it all together and doing the wrong thing.

I'm wanting to use the dual core with blender for rendering animations, so while I wont be loading the motherboard with power hungry graphics cards, the system will be working hard.

Has anyone run a PC with a 20 pin power supply on a 24 pin motherboard and all gone ok?
Has it gone wrong?
