PSU has 4-pin CPU cable - Mainboard has 8-pin - Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

I recently ordered the following parts for a new system I'm building and realized after the fact that PSU does not have an 8-pin cpu cable but instead 2 4-pin cpu cables.


DFI LANPARTY DK P35-T2RS LGA 775 Intel P35 $139.99


OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS ATX12V / EPS12V 600W Power Supply $79.99 MIR


Although I haven't received the parts yet,I downloaded the manual for the DFI board and it said that a 4 or 8 pin will work but that the 8-pin is preferred.


I'm looking for recommendations on what would be best without getting a different PSU.


- Should I just use the 4-pin?


- Should I get a 4 to 8-pin converter? If so, any recommendations on one to use? I found these


- Is it possible to use both 4-pins ?



Any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah...the PSU has that plug as stated above, on another note the system will run just fine on a 4 pin, though overclocking could be limited depending on the board's power design and CPU used in such a situation.


Anyway, enjoy the toys :)
