PSU I am considering buying has a 4-pin 12V connector and a 8-pin 12V connector. My MB only has a 4-pin connector. Is the 8-pin just optional. Can I just use the 4-pin

Most modern PSUs are compatible with either the 4-pin ATX12V standard or the 8-pin EPS standard. So to answer your question: Yes, you can use the 4-pin ATX12V connector to provide power to your CPU power header on the motherboard.
