I've bought new intel dh77eb(not goin' to overclock) for my i5 3570(non K) rig. It have only 4 pin cpu power connector. On the other hand asus p8h77 m 've 8 pin power connector.Does his mean that my processor wont be able to perform its maximum(due to low power delivery)??? or have i done anything foolish buying an intel board with 4 pin cpu power connector. I have a coolermaster extreme 2 625w PSU, which is having 8 pin cpu power connector. :o

You are fine with that 4pin connectors. The 8pin connectors prove better in an overclocked environment.
