Hi to all, i am new to rig building and i have a problem with my cpu connector. It seems that one of the cpu connector socket is not the same with my z77 cpu connector. I am getting confused! really confused.... is my psu compitable with my mobo? (cooler master gx650 and asrock z77 extreme4) :pt1cable:

so, the the main plug to the mobo is the 24 pin one. Your PSU has a 20+4, so you have to squish them together to fit them on the mobo. Next, you have 2 4x4 connectors. You squish them together and then you have a 8 pin P4 connector (goes to the mobo as well, usually on the left side of the CPU)

Whats the problem? You have all the right connectors....

Good luck with your build.

thanks Festerovic, got confused with cpu 4+4 pin because the other 4 pin from my psu is not identical with my mobo. So what i did is i leave it unplug and *ching* it did power on.

But my question is will my pc would be ok even if i did'nt plug the other 4pin cpu connector? just a little worried, this is my first build..

The other 4 pin connector is to supply more power to the CPU for overclocking, and if the board is only 1 4pin, not 2, you can leave the other 4 pin alone and it will run fine. Basically, you only use it if the board has 2 4pin connectors (I think most of the boards meant for overclocking have it standard)
