So I just bought a new PC and within it I have an Asus m5a97 le r2.0. I noticed it has a 4pin power connector, instead of a 8pin connector, along with the 24pin. Will the amd fx-8350 be able to run only though it will be getting the power from a 4pin connector. I will be using a xfx r9 280x along with a 735w psu if that helps. Will i get all 4ghz and will the fps in games be the same as a 8 pin connector? Am i worrying too much about this?

The only reason for an 8 pin CPU power header is for the headroom for heavy overclocking. Your MB will still provide the power needed for the FX-8350. No problem.

Asus m5a97 le r2.0 is not intended for overclocking..
naked vrm heatsink is one good indication..
at stock clock, you'll be absolutely fine..

if you want to overclock your processor, get better motherboard..
asus m5a97 r.2 and asus m5a99 evo is an excellent motherboard for the price..

Thanks, so much. I do not to over clock anytime in the near future, or for a very long time.
