Hi,

I just got a MSI Z87-G45 Gaming Motherboard which has an 8-pin connector. The old power supply that was powering my old motherboard has a 4-pin slot. I don't mind buying a new power supply but was just wondering whether the 4-pin will work on a 8-pin motherboard slot until I get a new power supply.

Intel i5-4670K is overclocked to 4.3GHz

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Some board could run off of just the 4 pin connector, however this is not recommended. If it has the 8 pin use 8 pin. Especially since you are OCed.
