I have a new PSU The Antec HCG-900W
and I noticed that my PSI P67 mobo has 8pins (12v) to "give the CPU" power.

In my 850W PSU, it only had a 4pin connector not a 8pin.

My mobo booted fine with 4, but should I connect the extra 4?

Please let me know asap.

Your system should work perfectly with only 4Pin connector..

But for the best OC results use 8Pin connector FTW..

CHEERS..

Always use the 8 pin if that is what your mobo has. You can get away with the 4 pin, but why?
