    so i just got my new xfx psu, and it has no 4 pin power connector, for the mobo. i feel like im missing something, because there's no way a 4 pin shouldn't be included. there's plenty of 6 pins and 8 pins, so should i use a 6 pin, in the 4 pin slot? it says the connectors are "keyed" so they'll only fit one way, so it thought using the 6 pin would be ok, if it fit.

    First of all, post the exact pw supply you are referencing. Post a link to the pw supply if possible.

    Most likely you have a 4+4pin connector. If you look carefully at the 8pin connector, you should be able to separate it into 4 and 4. Again post a link to the exact pw supply so I can tell for sure.

    The specs show 4+4pin so look carefully at the connector. You can probably unsnap something to separate the connector. Generally you can use either one of the 4+4pin connectors. If you can plug in one side to the aux connector that is fine as long as the connector fully seats in the mb and the unused side does not touch anything [if you cannot separated them]

    BTW xfx does not make their own pw supplies; those are re-branded seasonic which is a very good mfg of pw supplies so it should be fine for you.
