  1. You still plug it in, 4 of the pins will still fit in the connector.
  2. I tried, and it does not fit..(i am using a corsair 500cx semi mod psu)

    well, your 8-pin cpu connector should split into 2 4-pin connectors. if it doesnt, then i would return the psu and get one that will have either a 4-pin or a 4+4-pin (an 8-pin that splits into 2 4-pin) good luck :)
