The ATX 4 pin power supply connector is a standard motherboard power connector used to provide +12 VDC to the processor voltage regulator.

Below is the complete pinout table for the standard ATX 4 pin (2x2) 12V power connector as of Version 2.2 of the ATX Specification (PDF).

Note: If you're using this pinout table to test power supply voltages, be aware that the voltages must be within ATX specified tolerances.
