Hey guys,

My motherboard has recently blown and I've had to replace it. My only issue is that it has a different internal power source to my former motherboard and I'm not sure if I can utilise my old power supply with it. I've included pictures of the motherboard connection (the blue one) and the power supply connection. Power supply connection is for a larger connection but it works perfectly with the motherboard, except it is inserted into 4 slots rather than 8.

Is this safe? It seems to be working fine.

Thanks,
Aidan.

Not only is it safe but that 8 pin connector should split into two 4 pin connectors for that exact purpose.
