The cables labeled 2 and 3 are for graphics cards (the GT 220 doesn't need these cables).

What does the cable labeled "4" look like? Is it an 8-pin?
yes 4 is an 8 pin

What does the cable labeled "4" look like?

The one you labeled "1" appears to be for devices like floppy drives.

The one you labeled 2 and 3 is for graphics cards. Number 3 is added when using a graphics card that needs an 8-pin connector instead of a 6-pin.

So what does cable #4 in your pic look like in person?

Does it look like it's designed to break in half so that it's split into two 4-pin connectors? If so, then do this and then connect it to the 4-pin connector on the motherboard.

Ok so you say I should break some off to have a 4 pin of the big one to put into the blue ? thingy?

I can't tell for certain, but it looks like in this build, the builder took one of the 4+4 pins and 'centered' it into the 4-pin CPU power slot....

...I don't know what to say about this.... Have you looked through your owner's manual?

If it is designed to snap in half, then do it. Then plug it into the 4-pin connector that is on the motherboard by the CPU.

If it's NOT designed to snap in half, then don't do it.

The 4+4 will NOT snap in half (it's the one that has eight pins total and doesn't have anything else branching off it's cable). It looks like you just use the inner 4 pins and it's good to go.

...Disclaimer alert?

Ok sorry had to take another pic and my cam is dead, this is a 8 pin yes but how am I going to break this apart?

Another pic here:

Corsair's site says this on the FAQ & Support page of the CX430:

"Where’s the 4-pin EPS/ATX 12v connector that I need for my motherboard?

Our power supplies ship with an 8-pin connector that splits in half. Use half of this connector for the 4-pin EPS/ATX 12v connector on your motherboard."

So that's why I'm asking.
