Is the 4+4 break away header the same as an 8 pin, and do you install both 4 pin heads into both cpu spots on the power supply?

  1. Yeah, some motherboards only use 4 pins (generally small form factors and low TDP processors, some exceptions), that's why the connector splits 4+4 :)
  2. Best answer
    Yeah 4+4 is basicaly only provided to power mobos with 8 pin sockets that most latest boards have they were first used to power mobos with 2 processor but the that seems history

    Get the power connected and get going they are made for that pupose only
