Default The CPU powerconnecter in the top left

The CPU Power connected in the top left, the white one has four holes exposed and four covered up I have a eight pin and a 4 pin for that spot should I remove the cover and connect the eight pin or just the four pin?

I think if you're using a quad core, it's better to use that 8-pin power connector, to provide more stable power.

If you ahve the option, do it of course. The motherboard supports it and will manage the power appropriately.
