    I have an Ultra V Series 500w power supply that has the 12x2, 3x2 and 2x2 connectors. My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H which requires the 12x2 (of course), but my question is do I need to plug in the 4x2 connector? I haven't tried booting yet. I'm not running a video or sound card, just the onboard video & sound (if that matters).
