Im upgrading my cpu to ryzen 3700X and motherboard to msi b450 pro carbon AC.... PSU is antec vp550 v2

Is it necessary to connect the additonal 4 pin connector to the board after the (8-pin) connector?

According to what i understand.... the The 8pin power connector is rated to deliver over 200 watts to your CPU. I dont think the ryzen will draw that much power in 99.9% cases.....and im not even planning to OC.

The additional 4 pin connector is not required right? Everything will work right? my PSU doesnt have that connector
