what connector is that in your image,the only connector the cpu has is a 4pin fan connector,and from my knowledge it does not look like that,can you post the spec"s of your computer and how old it is,this should help you to get more help on this forum,there is also a motherboard section you can use


Mobo: MSI z77 GD65
PSU: Cooler Master GX 650 watt.

The mobo has 2 main power plugs 24 pin and 8 pin.

that 8 pin, I'm addnig 4 + 4 pins to it.

I have no idea, I just realised my PSU do not come with 8 pin connector but it does say "4+4 CPU +12V connector" so i figured, this should go inside the 8 pin slot on the mobo.

haven't bothered cuz the 'yellow' wires don't/won't line up together and the clip direction would be opposite. Isn't that dangerous... i mean plugging something in , in another direction than it suppose to.
 
Hi Maxert

I looked at a spare motherboard with 4/8 12V connector

are you sure the plug you have in the socket is in the correct end of the 8pin socket?

The clips on the 4 pin plug should be in the middle not the end of the 8 pin socket
(and the clips adjacent to each other when the 2 4pin plugs are correctly aligned with each other and the socket)
