4 pins or 8 pins connector on MB


Apr 13, 2010
Please tell me, if i have motherboart with 24 pins connector and 8 pins connector. I must buy power supply with 8 pins connector or i can go with standart 4 pins?
The additional 4 pins on the 8 pin connector are not needed. You can plug a 4 pin power into a 8 pin motherboard. Some boards come with 4 of the pins covered. Those are the ones you leave unused.

The 8 pin EPS standard was established for multi-socket systems. Its not needed for your system.
