    For those who read my previous post yup am building another rig ~_~ my power supply has 2 4 pin connectors but they don't link up together but i read somewhere that they will plug into a 8pin motherboard (one which am purchasing soon) and i was concern should i go ahead buy the board and would it work properly...am going to look at my cord and see how they look compared to what i read of the website thanks again

    You plug either a 20 pin or 24 pin into your motherboard.

    ok i take it back it can pretty vague when i look out the tread topic ~_~...read on a website that it would fit the main 4 pin is shaped properly and then the other 4 pin is all circles and fits also and should fit in a 8 pin just wonder if someone has hooked it up with no problems i dont mind trying...or maybe i do :? stepping out of AMD and trying out an Intel setup
