The last two pins are grounds required to overclock with CCC. You can overclock just fine without an 8-pin connector using ATITool or RivaTuner

ati tool can adjust the voltages.. but there's a trick to getting it to work.. you hvae to set your clock first. then adjust the voltage and apply.. other wise, the setting will reset if you do voltage then clock... ya its retarded...
