You’ll need to research the specific board to find it. It’s likely that you can use your power supply in an 8 pin port if you only have a 4-pin connection. If compatible, it will be on the other side of the 8-pin connection. This will probably give enough power, but be careful.

Can I use a 4 pin to 8 pin adapter?
It’s not safe to use a 4-pin to 8-pin card. Thin gauge wire can melt if too much power goes through them, which is why they are not standardized.
Do I need both 8 pin and 4 pin?
You don’t need to plug that extra 4 pin into the board. The 8 pin is all that is needed to run the system. You are okay without it. 650 Watts is enough if you upgrade to a RTX 3070 or 3080 and a Ryzen 5600X.
What is the difference between the 4 and 8 pin connector to the motherboard?
Since there are twice as many pins, the 8-pin is able to provide more current. If you use only 4 of the 8 pins, you can get away with using half of the 8-pin connection on the board.
Do I need to connect 8 pin CPU?
If you are doing extreme overclocking, the 4 pin is not required. The power will be provided by the 8 pin.
What is the extra 4 pin connector on a motherboard?
An additional 12V current is supplied to the board by this connection. The system will likely run without it, but higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may need it.
How much power can a cpu 8 pin?
75W and 150W power delivery can be achieved with a single 6-pin and single 8-pin connection. It can draw up to 300 watt if you need to power two 150 watt connections.
Do I need both 8 pin GPU power connector?
The graphics card will come with either an 8-pin or two 6-pin connection. There are exceptions every now and then. The most power-hungry graphics cards have a 6-pin and 8-pin plug in. The GeForce RTX 3060 has two different types of connections.
Is 8 pin enough for 5600x?
The ryzen 5 5600x needs a lot of power pins. If you’re talking about the Motherboard’s 8 Pins and 4 Pins, you need to connect the 8 Pins to the PC to work and the 4 Pins to the Processor in case you want to increase the amount of power that the Processor can give you.
Where does a 4 pin power connector go?
The power cable should be connected to the board. It’s possible that you need the 8 pin power connection. The power supplies should be connected to the power supply. CD/DVD roms, hard drives, card readers, fan controllers, and case fans can all be included in a 4 pin powersupply.
Is a 6 pin to 8 pin connector safe?
There are 8 pins and they are 150. I think 2 6 pin to a single 8 pin is safe if you have good quality. There is only one 6 to 8 pin. You could be talking fire if you were talking cheap ones.
Is 4 4pin the same as 8 pin?
The 4+4 pin was designed for older models and only requires a 4 pin for the cpu.
Do I need to use all CPU power connectors?
Don’t use it if you don’t have it. If the demands of the cpu aren’t met, you’ll have power problems. Many boards don’t work because they have to use both. For OC purposes, the 3rd and 8 pin are optional.
What is the 8 pin ATX 12V power connector?
Can be used to provide additional power to the video card by connecting it to a six or eight pin sockets. Most of the time it is used to power hard drives. Hard drives, optical drives, and many other devices were once used for these, but now they are mostly used for fan connections.
