if the CPU connector plugged in. should this be the right way?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
it plugged in easily without any force but not all pins match with the hols

there are 2 rounded off pins going into square holes---- is that okay or problem?

asus b150 pro gaming aura http://prntscr.com/cri7ow
seasonic m12ii 620w evo http://prntscr.com/cri758
te pins with red points should be square to match

i am sure it is 4+4 cpu cable not pci-e

Did you contact seasonic/asus on the matter?

separate the 4 pin connectors and plug in just the one 4 pin connector that fits, i believe that will still work (still delivers 12v). Someone should correct me if im wrong.

connect the 8 pin connector, you can't put it backwards there's only one way to connect it

If you can't figure out that the CPU plug on the power supply goes into the CPU_pwr plug on the motherboard, you need to pay someone to build your computer for you.

Do it! What can possibly go wrong.

I think this is how it is with 4+4 pin connectors on a normal PSU.

I have a strange PSU that was intended for a workstation, not for a normal PC, and that PSU has an 8-pin connector that follows the shape of the motherboard's 8-pin CPU power connector exactly. I don't know why it's different for the usual 4+4 pin connectors in a normal PSU.

post some pics of the 8 pin connector by itself with 8 pin together and separately
