Hello everyone, thanks in advance for your help.

I have an EVGA 850G PSU and whilst trying to get everything connected I have ran into an issue. I have been supplied with an EPS12V cable with an 8pin connection on one side and a 4+4 pin connection on the other end, the problem is that the 8pin connection is for a VGA port and is not compatible with the CPU1 or CPU2 slot on the PSU. I have not tried to power it up with the CPU connected to a VGA port as I am not sure if it is safe to do so. I have a different cable from a corsair power supply, this was compatible with the motherboard 4+4 pin and with the EVGA CPU1 connection slot. However, the pc would not boot with this plugged in using the corsair cable. I have included some photos of the EVGA cable in question and the EVGA PSU. Please can you advise on whether it will be safe to power my CPU using the EVGA CPU cable plugged into the VGA port on the power supply, and if not, have I received a faulty cable?

I don't think this is the EPS12V cable.
I think this is the GPU cable.
This is why it doesn't fit.
Don't try to power it up with the CPU connected to the VGA port.
Also, don't use power supply cables that didn't come with the power supply unless you are 100% sure you are using the right cable.
