It depends on the board and the CPU, many are fine with just having the 4 pin plugged in, some are picky and always want an 8 pin plugged in. Consult your motherboard manual. popatim October 23, 2010 9:42:41 PM If your motherboard requires the 8 pin you can purchase an adapter. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
