4-pin power supply on 8-pin motherboard? - Page 2

post #11 of 13

Even with an 1100T nearing 5ghz? That overclock is probably wishful thinking, but spending a couple dollars on a cable to not have that in the back of my mind is worth it in my opinion.
And thanks Vagrant, having a look for one of them on ebay now!

And I won't be using this with the E8200, ordered a high end AM3+ board and hopefully an 1100T if I can get one second hand for $160 which I think I can just about do.

Oh if it is a 1100T then 8 pin would be a very good idea. Truth be told, I wouldn't use a 4 pin for any CPU (intel or AMD) with a power draw over 95 watts or so.

You could see if you could find this cable. For when I had the issue of needing an 8 pin, I went with a Hiper adapter that was 1x 4 pin CPU power, and 2x 4 pin molex cables to the required 8 pin.
