Hello,

I am building my system and I am supposed to connect the 8 PIN power connector of the mobo (the connector providing 12V power to the CPU).
Unfortunately, the connectors "CPU" provided by Corsair do not fit (8 PINS but not correctly shaped)!!!!

Can anyone suggest a solution to get a proper cable from my PSU to the mobo CPU 8 pin connector?

Thx very much

You are probably using the wrong 8-pin or are using it in the wrong direction.

There are 8-pins for the graphics card as well, make sure you are not using those. I have made this mistake before lol.

they work. you just plugged in the wrong one. there is one from the psu that is specially arranged in a 4+4 configuration. use that one
