PSU with 4+4 pin

Hello, I currently have a CoolerMaster 460w with only 1 4 pin, my motherboard has EATX12V, so it has the 4+4 pin, question is: should I buy a new PSU with the 4+4 pin?

Thans guys

  1. That will depend on the rest of your system.

    If your power supply has enough clean power for your system and just lacks the connector, you can just get an adapter or, if your CPU will pull less than 125w *including an on overclock*, just use the 4-pin on one side of the 8-pin connector on the MB.

    Adapter:
