Hey, I'm building a computer on a Gigabyte P55 and the PSU I got only has 1 4-pin CPU power connector... The motherboard's CPU power connector has 8 pins. Is 4-pin sufficient?

(Due to the fact that Tom's won't let me edit my post i'm double posting) More specifically I'm using a P55-UD3R with an i7 860. Also, when turned on a unending high-pitched whine is emitted from the speaker.
Yes, the 4 pin CPU power connector will work just fine in the 8 pin motherboard port. It should be keyed to only fit one way.
