Ga-p55a-ud3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I was wondering if I will be able to overclock my i5-760 on this board with only connecting 1 of the 4pin power cables to the power connector next to the CPU socket. My PSU only has 1 4-pin power connector. Will this suffice if I want to try and get 4ghz or will I need a new PSU that has an 8-pin power connector?

Pictures to follow.

I am pretty sure an 8 pin is required since it's not guaranteed that the computer will boot without one

I'm running the system on a single 4-pin. I was wondering if an 8-pin is required for overclocking.
