PSU- ISO-400PP

I recently just bought the ram cpu and motherboard and the motherboard had an 8 pin atx power cable but I only have a 4 pin cable. Will it work fine without burning the components. PS. I know my psu is very bad but will it still be fine?

That PSU is more of a firestarter. You should swap it out for a reliable unit. Thumb rule: You should pick a PSU that has the right connectors for your motherboard.

PS. I know my psu is very bad but will it still be fine?
You want to risk everything in spite of knowing the PSU is bad? It's the same as trying to get into an accident without an airbag or a seatbelt.

Even with the psu being bad etc will a 4 pin work fine as I have ordered a connector for 4 pin to 8 pin but it will take alot of time to come due to The current situation around the world. If I use the 4 pin for now will it work fine??
