Hi guys, I am using a AMD FX 8320 on the ASUS sabertooth R2.0 and I'm using the 4 pin power connector to power that cpu. I am also using a noctua NH-D14 so I do plan on overclocking. My question is if I use that 4 pin power connector with overclocking the cpu to atleast 4ghz and 4.5ghz max will it work? I cannot use the 8 pin because the power connectors won't fit together for some reason.

If the motherboard has a 8 pin connector, you should use it as the FX 8320 requires a lot of power. Do your PSU comes with a 4+4 power cable or just a solid 8 pin?

Whoops, I picked that as the solution ( I did not mean to), My motherboard has the thing so I can plug in a 8 pin but the 4+4 pin power connector that came with my PSU does not fit together and IDK why! :(  :(

Check the shapes of the pins and the sockets of the header carefully, I also had issues plugging that cable on the mobo, just dont force it.

What power supply?

The 4+4 should fit with no issues , you can't overclock effectively with just 4 plugged in.
