Motherboard 8pin Adapter

My power supply does not have a 8pin connector for the motherboard so i need an adapter, i bought a Startech PCI Express 6pin to 8pin and tried to connect it but the 8pin would not fit into the motherboard, what type of adapter do i need then? (a link to the product on amazon.co.uk would be appreciated!)

  1. If the PSu has a 4 pin power connector, connect this one to the board's 8-pin one.

  3. i think you don't need an adapter, if you just plug the 4 pin into the 8 pin on one of the sides, i forgot which.

    although the adapter may be useful to increase cable length to re route the cable round the back of the case to improve airflow.
  4. Ill just play it safe and use the 8pin I've ordered when it arrives, thanks.
