Hi everyone, i really need your help.
I have a psu (Corsair GS800) that only got an 8 pins ATX-12V connector, but my mobo has a 4 pin header.
Can i connect the 4 of the 8 pins connector (half the connector) into the 4 pin header? Because i don't know if my psu atx-12 cable is split-able. When i try to plug half of the 8 pin connector into the 4 pin header, it fits right in, but i still can not risk it.
So i really need your help,
Thank you

The 8 pin splits

Either side works for the 4 pin header

Just make sure you match the shapes of the male connectors to the female connector.
