Question Mounting Intel Core i5-13600K processor on Gigabyte B660M motherboard

Jan 14, 2023
I want to mount an Intel Core i5-13600K processor on a Gigabyte B660M motherboard. The motherboard has two sockets for CPU to connect to PSU: 8pin+4pin.

Shall I use all pins or shall I use only the 8-pin connector?
You cannot overclock a 13600K on a B760 board so only plugging in one 8 pin power connector should be enough.

When overclocking a 10850K, I can pull over 300W without any problems with just a single 8 pin power connector going to the motherboard. A 13600K will need less power than that.
