CPU Power connector for Maximus VI Gene

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This board has a 8-pin EATX12V and my PSU (Corsair AX 860) comes with a 4+4 plug. One of the 4 pin plugs is shaped with square moulds along a diagonal while the other consists entirely of wedge-shaped moulds. The 8-pin connector has squares diagonally.
Since the wedge shaped pins may fit into square holes should I insert both plugs?

MOBO booklet: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1150/MAXIMUS-VI-GENE/E8458_Maximus_VI_Gene.pdf
chapter 1 page 44 and chapter 2 page 7.

The holes on the MB probably are shaped to accommodate EITHER a 4+4 pin plug or a single 8 pin PCie plug. If the plug fits, you can use it.

The 4+4 on PSUs is designed so you can use it on a motherboard that uses 4 pins for CPU power, or combine them for 8pin. So you are good.
