i kno the 680i board allows u to connect the 8-pin connector with a 4-pin one if your power supply does not support 8-pins. check ur manual on the board to see which slots its supposed to plug into.

You still can use it. If you want, you can get one of this.

The problem is that those cables don't provide extra stability as if you had a PSU which physically had 8 pin.

4 to 8 pin adapters seem to have mixed results

Agreed, it doesn't provide extra stability.
