CPU Power Tags: Motherboards CPUs Power Last response: November 26, 2012 6:24 PM in Motherboards Share krustykobb November 24, 2012 2:09:29 PM Hi, This is my first post! I am thinking of buying a motherboard with a 8 pin CPU power plug required but my psu only has 4pin on it. Will this be a problem with cpu power? Or is it 4+4 and does it not matter? And if it does can I buy an adapter for it? Thanks in advance! More about : cpu power krustykobb November 25, 2012 6:23:28 AM Can anyone help me on what to do?
