Ok! So i got all parts of my new comp installed, cable management is done, yet i still have something i'm not sure of.
The motherboard (Asus Crosshair III Formula) has an 8pin slot with a tiny cap on it that covers 4 of the pins leaving the other 4 open, meaning a 4pin connector can go there. My power supply (Silverstone Decathlon 1000w) has both 4pin and 8pin options.
So question is, should i remove the cap and use the 8pin cable, or just go with the 4pin? And either way, what's the difference?
In case the rest stuff on board matter, the CPU is an AMD 965 Black Edition, Thermalright True 120 Black cpu cooler, 4GB of 1333 OCZ ram (2x2gb), and an ATI Radeon 5850 VGA.
The difference would be apparent in overclocking. Take the cap off and connect the 8 pin since your PSU supports it. It will provide a greater stability (in theory at least). The cap is there for older PSUs that only had 4 pins.
To sum up: 8pin better than 4pin, so just connect it
