CPU 8 pin to 4 pin?

Recommended Posts

Hey, this is my first time building a computer, got my parts today, and notice a problem when I am installing the PSU. It seems like the PSU has 8 pin, and my board only has 4 pin for the CPU.

So will something like this work? I really don't feel like mailing the psu back to newegg and get a new one.
