Hello my mb is msi z590 gaming edge wifi and the cpu has two 8 pin power connectors but my psu has a 8 pin and 4+4 pin . Which the left side of 4+4 pin doesnt match the motherboard connector. ( It connects) but the platic around the pins on cable of the left one are
All circular which on the mobo some are square and some circle. Is it ok to connect? Or it isnt compatib?

Both E-ATX 4+4 pin cable and 8-pin cable must fit couple with any 8-pin CPU power socket on motherboard without problems. Then something is wrong with either cables or motherboard CPU power connector. May I ask for detailed motherboard photo? Especially location with CPU power sockets.

No i have no problem plugging the 4+4 pin i only doubt.



As you see in photos the left side of the 4 pin cable is all d shaped but the power connector in the mb is 2 square and two d shape. It can be pluggged in with no problem. But i doubt.
