CPU Power Connector 8pin

Depends on what you mean, but overall it is not normal to "squish" around, it should be very secure. BIOS temperature means nothing, load temps matter.

not "you should be good," just "it will be functional on a basic level." I would not put my faith in that power supply by any means, not in a system I care about.

My power connection for my CPU on my motherboard is 8pin, but my power supply only has a 4pin CPU connector.

 

Help?

 

Will it work like this? gotta get a new PSU now?

New PSU is very much recommended, but in theory there is nothing stopping you.


Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, Fractal, GSkill (RAM only)

A single 4 pin connector can push a little less than 200 watts, which is fine for basically any CPU, but any PSU that has only 4 CPU pins is absolute junk.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

If your PSU still only has a 4 pin P4 power connector its time for a new psu.

As far as the power draw, any 95w or lower processor will be fine on just a 4 pin.

It's an i5-6500 with a TDP of 65w. so I should be good based on what your guys are saying?

 

It's an Antec 500w something or other PSU.

 

On a side note, just isntalled a Stock Intel Cooler, and it seems to squish around a bit, not a tight secure, is this normal for stock intel coolers? CPU temp on BIOS reads 44.5degrees.

Thanks, have never used stock cooler, so now I know.

 

I'll keep an eye on temps during load.

 

Sounds like I'll look for a new PSU as we.. thanks.
