Hi,

The cable that goes from the psu to the motherboard for cpu power doesn't match perfectly

Motherboard:


Cable:



If not clear in the picture, the pattern is:

ROUNDED SQUARE ROUNDED ROUNDED
SQUARE ROUNDED ROUNDED ROUNDED


I saw something that said that a rounded connection can go into square connection, but a square connection can't go into a rounded connection, is this correct?
So have I got the correct cable? (on the cable it says PSU at one end, and CPU on the other)

Thanks

Yes, that's correct. I had the same concern when I got a 6 pin to 8 pin GPU power adapter. It turned out OK because the 'rounded' contact was intended to go into a 'squared' socket and it worked correctly.

But I stressed a bit too before proceeding. :)
