So I have a msi Z87-G45 GAMING and a Corsair Enthusiast TX650M.

The problem is the CPU power cable. the motherboard has an 8 pin but, only half of the CPU cable fits right. the other half can fit in but, the shapes are different. Do I plug all of them in or only the 4 pin that fits right?

Both four-pin halves should connect together and fit fine. Pics?

The one on the left is what I have, the one on the right is the exact shape that i need but, the one on the left can fit but, doesn't match the shape of the right one. should I still connect them together?

It should be fine. I think there might have been a few revisions to the standards, though.

Are they wired the same? Should be yellow wires on the clip side, and black on the other.

Yes, the top 4 wires are yellow and the bottom 4 wires are black. So I should just plug both despite the different socket patterns? But it does say CPU (just saying)
