Honestly, it doesn't really matter, although usually, boards that have an 8 pin connector are better for overclocking because the extra 4 pins can provide extra power that may be useful for overclocking.

It doesn't really matter, but generally speaking a mobo that uses a 4 pin connector requires less voltage and so less features. That would make the 8 pin better
