Can I use a 4pin cpu cable to power my Asus M5A97 (8pin)?
I don't think my psu has the 8pin cable... It has one cable which has the correct 8pin configuration on one side which connects directly to the psu, but on the other side it's a 4+4 cpu configuration which doesn't match the 8pin :[ (top: round square square round bottom: square round round square).
do you know any place i could buy the appropriate 8 pin male - 8pin male connector? :c
Snap the two parts of the 4+4 connector together, that's your 8-pin connector, no adapter required. The two halves correctly joined together should have exactly the same dimensions and shape configuration as the 8-pin ATX12V connector.
Best answer selected by smartdummy2.nnapparently the round shaped male ends can fit into the square ends, which means the top: round round bottom: round round worked nnSorry, I gave up hope when I noticed the shapes were different...
