Thread: P55-UD3 + i5-750 4 pin in 8 pin 12v




  1. #1

    Default P55-UD3 + i5-750 4 pin in 8 pin 12v

    Hey folks,

    GA P55-UD3
    i5-750
    2x2GB Patriot-Viper2 2000mhz
    1TB Western Digital AV drive
    ECS 512MB 9500GT
    Thermaltake RS100
    Thermaltake 430NP-A2 430W


    Basically my PSU does not have an 8 pin cable, only a 4 pin. I know an adapter would be fine for the job, but my question is how safe am I running with just the 4 pin in the 8 pin connector with this load? I just don't want to end up with a fried connector/cable. I'd like to have this PC ready for testing tomorrow, however it'll be Sunday here, no stores open. I can wait of course if the risk is moderate, but if its negligible I might just want to give it a go now. Any thoughts appreciated.

    I don't intend to get a more powerful PSU. Although an 4 pin to 8 pin adapter would come in handy. Would you say a TT 430W is not powerful enough for everyday use for this rig?

    id say it will be ok,the 750 chip uses alot less power 90w at stock compared to a 920 130w at stock so you should be ok,if your going to overclock high i would get a bigger psu but for a mild overclock you should be allright
