  1. There hould be 1 X CPU 4 pin connector. It's enough power for your CPU.
  2. Don't use the 6 pin, that is for PCI connections - like GhislainG says there should be a single 4 pin that will fit - use that in the closer point to the CPU - the other 4 pin slot can be left unfilled with no ill effects.

    Thanks for the quick response I found the 4pin and hooked it up but it is still cycleing on and off so i will go back and begin at the beginning and do the full check list and get back to you and let you know how i went thanks again arfadog
