I have just purchased a gigabyte ga-z77-d3h motherboard. It has a power connectror labeled ATX_12V_2x4 in addition to the 24 pin. My PSU has 8 4 pin connectors. I do not have a 8 pin connector. Can I use 2 4 pin connectors? My PSU is Corsair HX650 V2.

Yep. Should work fine. Me, I didn't have to use 2 4pin connectors (my PSU came with 1 8pin) But I've heard from many places that it will still work. Unless you are running a PSU that is drawing 120+ watts, again, it will work. Need anymore assurance that it will work? :kaola:
