    That's for a connector from the PSU which carries 12v power to the motherboard. It was originally designed for Pentium 4 boards, but now a lot of nForce 2 Socket A boards are carrying them.

    Every recent PSU I've seen has had one.

    I never actually built a newer amd machine, do they not utilize the 12v connector. I would assume that they would.
    If no questions are asked, no answers can be given.
