PSU Doesn't have a Molex connecter

Hello, I recently purchased a Corsair CX600 PSU to cope with my new Radeon 7950. I installed the PSU and connected it to all the components when I found that there was a little 4 pin slot near the CPU. I couldn't find a 4 pin connector with the PSU so I figured it mustn't have been important. After the PC failed to boot I did a bit of research and I found that the little 4 pin Molex connector was what gives your CPU power. As previously said my PSU doesn't have a Molex connector so what do I do?

Specs:

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Stock
Cooler Master Fan
Gigabyte Radeon 7950
Corsair CX600
500GB SATA Hard Drive
A couple of fans

Your PSU has an 8 pin EPS connector which is the same as two ATX connectors together. Use the 8pin which should say ATX or CPU or EPS on it. Four of the connectors will plug into the four pin while the other 4 will simply hang above nothing. This link shows how it can work (similar to the 24 pin on the 20 pin connector example) http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors....
Hope it helps

Thank you very much for your suggestion, but the park of the connector that would have hanged over the edge of the port is obstructed by something, here is an image of my mobo so you can see for yourself http://www.foxconnchannel.com/ProductDetail.aspx?T=moth...
would it be possible to snap half of the 8 pin connector so it fits?

Can't get it to hang over the unobstructed side?

You don´t have to snap it. The connector can be seperated in half by pulling or pushing four Pins.

Don´t mix up the 6+2 Pins PCIexpress Power connector with the EPS 4 + 4 Pins !!

I thank you both very much, my rig is now fully functional!
