What power supply ?
Connect the 8 pin,the 4 pin will be easier to tuck away.

Oh, with a tail. You can always tie the 4 pin back.

I have a CWT with the same type of cable, modded it by cutting the connectors off and replacing them with a 4+4 connector.

The only reason not to go with 8 pins is if your board or PSU only have 4. Its one of those backwards compatible changes made to ATX 2. Usually works fine either way though.
