Default PSU power connectors to motherboard.

I connected the 20 + pin to the motherboard,and the 4 pin to the motherboard. The guide tells me i need to plug in a 8 pin power connector? neither the PSU or the motherboard came with this cable. I don't even have a 8 pin slot for it on the motherboard.

If you don't have an 8-pin power slot on the motherboard, theres no need to worry. I guess that guide is trying to cover different types of motherboards. Ones with the 4-pin or 8-pin CPU power connector.

I don't think want, because we mostly shove it down people's throats, that they just give in.
