I just purchased an Aria from a firend but when I got home i realized the PSU only had a twenty pin connector. The manual says that there is also a 4 pin (+12v) connector, is this for use with a 24 pin mobo? If not is there any way to convert the 20 pin to 24 pin. Thanks so much for the help.
 
Yep, you connect the 20pin to the mobo, and the 4pin goes on to the end of the power connector / another connector somewhere else on the board.

There is a way to convert 24-20pin, but I'm not sure about the other way / if it would be a good idea.

you can get an adapter but you need to make sure your mobo will have enough power once done. It should, its a real antec 300W psu. I run an aria on a A64 3000+ with a 6800 so its liekly fine, maybe a 6800U will giv ya a bit of trouble but otherwise, you'll be ok.

The adapter is easy to find. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16812145002 there
