Default Power Supply Question

Hello I recently ordered

Newegg.com - OCZ ZT Series 750W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Bronze High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandy Bridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom

But i have run into one problem. The CPU out cable is an 8 pin from the PSU and also an 8 pin to connect to the CPU. My CPU is only a 4 pin. I looked some other places to see if they made an 8 to 4 but they always have one female which i need two male. Can someone direct me to the right cord that i will need if possible. Thanks!

Default Re: Power Supply Question

Use the one you got. It'll still plug in and only one way. Try either 4 on either side of the 8 pin.
