Yes, you can connect the 4 pin power supply to the 8 pin with little trouble but, you should not try any advanced features like overclocking or crossfire. If you would like to do those things I suggest getting a 4 to 8 pin adapter (very cheap usually less than $5) at most local computer stores.

The 4 pin CPU power connector is using in most of the desktop motherboard. If your motherboard is gaming type or workstation board you need to connect 8pin CPU power connector. Molex connectors are using to power up DVD Drives and HDDs. In New model power supply instead of molex connector SATA Power connectors are coming.

Motherboard will not post no video either if i have the 12v 4pin cpu plug in its socket the pc just starts and stops in a loop


The motherboard is stopping while you connecting the 12V 4pin connector because of VRM short circuit (Voltage Raiser Module, CPU V-Core circulatory). Contact Nearest Gigabyte support center for support.

My new system does not work. It apears that the ATX_12V_2x connection on the board excessively loads the power supply. If this connection is removed, the power supply behaves normally, but nothing works...


hello richardwa908

you have not mentioned what model is your main board but since you said new i take it is i5-i7 series.

change the power supply. i understand it may even be new power supply but change it. specially if you are using anything over 850-900 watts power supply.

the problem is some high power power supplies cause an issue with the system. specially the ones that the 8pin connection is 4+4 type. in my case i have had to replace all my supply of 1200 watts ones with 860 watts power supplies.

hope this helps you
good luck

Board will not boot.power supply changed


The power supply and motherboard have a connection (4pin) that communicate to each other. Without this connection, the board will not boot and the power supply will not come on.
The power supply can be fooled by jumping certain pins, but the motherboard must be connected.
Please consult your motherboard manual for the location of this connector.
Visit this site for more clarification please.

PC won't 4power on.


Failures in the motherboard, memory, or any installed card could cause that symptom. All I can suggest based on the above information is remove memory one piece at a time and retest, remove/reseat video card if you have one, and attempt to reset the CMOS using the jumper on the board. You might also try removing the battery on the board and unplugging everything, then attempt to reboot.
