    Default ep45-ud3r power

    Is it ok to use the 4 pin connector rather than the 8 pin?

    No...you need plug 2x4 pin=8 like this pix below.



    you might need buy new PSU for that support.

    Provided the power draw doesn't exceed what can be provided by the single four-pin, nothing.

    If you're running a very high-drain system you might start getting errors similar to those from an inadequate PSU.

    +1 for the above!

    You can use 4pin, but if overclocking or you have a small PSU (Which is likely) then you may have issues

    Hi, I have similar problem. I've just bought EP45-ud3p. I am using 400W PS with only 1 4pin line for the cpu. I read the manual on page 23, but my mobo does not have protective cap on 8 pin CPU line. I don't know on which 4 to connect the PSU - 1st (1-2-5-6 pins) or 2nd (3-4-7-8 pins). I will buy ne wPSU, but within 1-2 months. Can you tell me how to connect, so I can use my mobo now? 10x in advance.

    As I recall, it should go on 3-4-7-8.

    If your PSU is a cheap and cheerful 400W you may find it a bit light on — don't overload it.

    I have the same problem with a GA-EP45-UD3P and a Corsair TX750, a half decent, currently available power supply.

    When did this new standard come out?
