Greetings everyone,
So I was doing my first build today when I noticed that my power supply, a raidmax atx 12v which came with my case, does not have an 8pin for the cpu power on my MSI P35 Plat. However it does have a 4 pin and a 6 pin cpu power connector. My chip is a E6850 Dore 2 duo. I was wondering if it is possible to connect the 4 or 6 pin in order to get it up and running or I need to get a new power supply. Any advice is appreciated.
