Seasonic x-series + P5Q SE/R motherboard: Which cable and socket should I use for the CPU power?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello

I have a seasonic x-series 660w and a P5Q SE/R motherboard.

May I know which how should I attach the CPU's cable?

I only found a 4-pin cable in the set but which socket should I attach it too?

I'm asking this question because for some reason after connecting the 4pin cable to the CPU and PSU.

I can't power up...even there is only the motherboard and CPU cable connected.

If you have a 4 pin on your PSU or a 8 pin that breaks into two 4 pins just use that and you are good to go
Only other cable you need hooked up to the motherboard is the 24 pin cable

well on seasonic x series there is a 4-pin to 4-pin.

I assume I can use that?

Yes if there is one you can use that. Some motherboards use 8pin some use 4 pin. Seasonic may give you the option for a 4+4 option, so if you have a mobo that requires 4, you can just use one instead of both for 8. Does that make sense? rolleyes.gif

Yes use 4 pin if you have 4 pin and use 8 pin if you have 8 pin

Your motherboard does not need enough power for an 8 pin which is why it has a 4 pin so just use the 4 pin from the PSU it is enough

oic, ok.

the 8 pin MB has a "CPU" label on it but the 4-pin does not..

I was worried that it might not power up if only the 4 to 4 pin cable is use.

Some motherboards may use 8+4 so in fact you are correct 8 is the CPU and then it will need a +4 pin in addition too. as you can see on the Z87 Maximus VI Motherboards Some motherboards like in your case will only need a 4 pin instead of the 8 pin because it doesnt need that much power... depending or not if your board is an overclocking board, etc...
