I just got new parts for a server and the mobo has a 8-pin CPU power connector. I could plug the 4-pin into the right 1/2 of the connectors and I cut a 4-pin CPU power connector off another old PSU and soldiered it onto a molex connector. So I have 2x4-pin connectors on the 8-pin connector. Im running 4x512mb DDR2 sticks a Pentium D 920 and a hard drive and a ****ty PCI graphics card. Im thinking since im not OCing this rig and im pretty much not running a gfx card cause there is no power connector on it so im thinking this wont affect stability will it? I made sure to soldier the 2 positive to the 12v positive on the molex and the 2 negative to the negative on the molex so this should work fine right? I can't test it until tomorrow because that is when the RAM is going to arrive.

If done correctly the only thing this could stress is your power supply. I wouldn't do that if I were you, I think homemade adapters are a bad idea. It's been while tho tell me how it worked out?
