You don't need the 8pin connector, leave the black cap on the extra 4 pin and use your current PSU's 4 pin connector.

I only use 4 out of the 8 my EPS12V PSU have. No need for the extra 4. But it'd be a good idea to use the full 8 when "IF" you decide to get a Quad-Core CPU, because basically, that is what the extra 4 pins would come in handy. To feed the extra 2 cores.

I love it. Check my specs for an example of a very easy overclock.

Temps are getting higher nowadays...but that is because ambient is rising for summer.
