dude, you need 8pin cpu pin (4+4 actually) and 24 pin connected....

for core i3 less than 125 watt, it is safe to connect only 4pin cpu, but it wont work that way on some cases

525w cooler master extreme2 is old tech unreliable psu. afaik, CM was a bad psu maker in the past. but it is getting better atm. you might want to replace it with corsair or xfx if you have no other solution to power on you pc
