hi, im getting the asus m5a97 le r2.0 am3+ atx motherboard. im also getting the cx 750m psu. my problem is the asus motherboard only has a 4 pin cpu connector and my psu only has a 8 pin psu connector. so im wondering if an 8 pin can be put in a 4pin by some use of a adapter or some other work around, tho i haven't bought any of these things yet so you can recommened another psu or mobo thanks.

That 8-pin CPU connector is designed to be split into into a 4+4-pin. It is a simple slide fit, where the two haves are joined. Don't worry your PSU is fine, it will accommodate the 4-pin CPU socket.

EDIT: If you go on Newegg's site for the PSU (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...) you can easily see the "split-line" in the 8-pin connecter, especially once you zoom-in through the picture/flash viewer.
