The 8 PIN splits and then you plug in one of the 4 pins.

The picture is correct. So do I just use half of the 8 pin connector coming from the psu and plug to the 4 pin connector shown above? It will plug like that but wasn't sure if that's correct way to do it.

Should work, that is why they split into 2, just get the 4 pin and plug it in.

Ok I got it split now and hooked up. Thanks I had no idea that the plug would split. One other wire that I'm not sure where it hooks. It's a wire in the cabinet/ case that has HD audio with another wire with AC 97 on it.

Bottom left of board should be an audio hookup.

Okay I hooked it to the SDIF connector on MB. Does that sound right? If so thanks man. I'm doing my first build for my Grandson. Big gamer and order all the components with the money he got for Christmas. Thanks again.
