Can You Plug an 8 Pin Into a 4 Pin (Expert Answers!)


Since you need to power two 150W connectors, the maximum power draw is 300W for a single 6-pin connector and 150W for a single 8-pin connector.

The most power-hungry graphics cards, like NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060, will have both an 8-pin and a 6-pin connector, but there are always exceptions.

Can a 4 Pin Cpu Connector Work 8 Pin

If compatible, your power supply can still be used in an 8-pin port even though it only has a 4-pin connector; if so, it will go in on one side of the 8-pin connector and should provide enough power, but watch out for over-clocking.

Do I Need to Plug in the 8 Pin and 4 Pin Cpu Power

If you are not using LN2 or other extreme overclocking techniques, the 8 pin will supply all the power you require.

as the motherboard specification states it is a 4 pin atx 12v power connection

Do All Psu Have 8 Pin

The most power-hungry graphics cards, like NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060, will have both an 8-pin and a 6-pin connector, but there are always exceptions.

Do I Need to Connect the Atx 12v

To meet expansion requirements, it is advised that a power supply that can withstand high power consumption be used (500W or greater). If the 12V power connector is not connected, the computer will not start.

if you are not using ln2 or other extreme overclocking techniques the 8 pin will supply all the power you require

Is Cpu Pwr2 Needed

It is typically not necessary, but it depends on the chipset you have; for instance, the X399 would require it.

it is compatible yes

What Is the 4 Pin Atx Power Connector for on a Motherboard

Pretty much every modern motherboard has a separate 12V power connector that is either a 4-pin or an 8-pin, with the primary function of powering the VRM that supplies power to the CPU. As the motherboard specification states, it is a 4-pin ATX 12V power connection.

Does the Cpu Need Its Own Power

The cpu is powered by the motherboard, but the motherboard also needs a 4 or 8 pin connector from the power supply.

What Is Atx 12v For

The ATX12V 4-pin connector, which is used by the majority of processors, be they Intel or AMD, supplies electrical current to your CPU and is required to be connected in the motherboard provided you are not using the EPS12V connector, which is described below.
