the "other" 4pin is covered with a plastic thingy which also means you dont need the 8pin to make it work..it's only recomended...
To quote myself (and the manual)

-Ensure to remove the cap on the EATX12V connector before connecting
an 8pin EPS +12v power plug
-Use only an 8 pin EPS +12v power plug for the EATX12V power connector.

But as you say m8, if it works it works.

I gave a link to an adapter from molex to 8pin EATX12v... 9.99$ I think

Lol@the ONLY 8 pin connector...
Maybe the SS made the manual

i know what you mean, but Asus guys sometimes are dumbasses =X
hell they can put up some decent hardware, but they fail to understand crap out of it...
so yes...
personal experience, it does power up with 1 4pin power connector without a problem, been running it since january, the only time it failed me was when i screwed up the clocks..

Hey roxxphatcox & SystemTech, I'm back and I hate to beat on that old horse some more, but I'm not having much luck with my NB heat issue. I couldn't get the finned plate off the heatsink at all, only one screw would come free. So I ended up pulling the entire heatsink assembly off the motherboard, turns out that 1 of the 2 standoffs was crooked so I removed it and placed back in properly. That didn't help my temperatures much at all, ~10C loss from 70C. I took 4 of the red cardboard washers that came with a case that I bought my daughter and placed those on the back (2 each screw) and got about another 2C knocked off. So right now it idles about 56-58C and loads at 61-65C with the only tweak done being bringing my Mushkins up to basic stock settings and underclocking them at 1333MHz, 1.85500VDC, 7-7-6-18. Everything else is default currently.

Needless to say, I'm about to RMA this board. Any other ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. I'd consider going to water cooling, but I just can't afford to do a custom system right now and I don't want to go with a "kit", I've heard to many stories about those.

Also do you know if NewEgg.com will send me a new board first or will I have to go without for about a week or so again?

On the upside, I LOVE THIS BOARD. Best dam tweaker I've ever had.

That`s 2 bad m8:/ I`m gonna RMA mine 2, I was going to return it on tuesday but they didnt have it in stock yet so I`m gonna wait till
they get it. That is the plus side of paying 10-15% extra in a local store

Still getting about 62-64C at load, this is not "That hot" for the NB ,
but since I bought this for OC`ing and tweaking this is unacceptable.

Having an "oven" in the center of the MB isnt excactly performance-enhancing

GL on your RMA m8
