ClausewitzI have two EPS connectors on my motherboard one 8 pin and one 4 pin. I own an EVGA Cable Kit which doesn't allow me to split the cable headers on the CPU cables - they are both 8 pin. Can I plug one 8 pin into the 4 pin with the remaining 4 pins hanging off or is this not advised?
EVGATech_JaesonWLike bob16314 said, plugging in half the 8 pin connector should be just fine if it will physically do so on your motherboard. Also check your manual, usually you only need the extra 4 pin if you're overclocking or using certain top end CPUs, you might not even need it.
