This is my first build in about ten years....
 
Mainboard is an ASUS Prime Z390
PSU is EVGA g3 750w
 
Both have 1 x 8 pin sockets for the 12v CPU cable.
But both the cables that came with the PSU are 8 X1 on end and 2 X 4 on the other.  Is it safe to jam the 2 X 4s into one 8 pin socket side by side?

    That's how it goes..The two 4-pin connectors fit together to make one 8-pin connector..And you shouldn't have to 'jam' them in..Look closely at them, they might slide together or there's tabs that fit together..The 2x4 part goes to the mobo.
