take the eps connector (see pic)
give it quick snap at the top and you will get two ATX (4-pin connectors). its not broke, its a dual purpose power connector
stick one of the new 4-pins into your 4-pin CPU connector

The 8 pin lead labeled CPU will fit in the 4 pin slot. No need to try to break it.
Look carefully, and you will see that it only fits just one way.
The latch side will be still on the latch side.
The unconnected parts will just protrude.
This is actually a clever inexpensive way to provide for motherboards with either 4 or 8 pin cpu connectors.
