    Default MA785GM-US2H and Seasonic 380w psu 4 pin 12v?

    Just noticed that my seasonic 380 only has a 4 pin 12v connector. Can I use this with my mobo, and if so how should I connect it to the 8 pin seat?

    it will only click in one way and will leave four unused slots,i ran my x58 set up with a 300w four pin cpu plug so you should be able to run it without problems

    Okay I'll try it. I can't hurt anything right? I've read where someone tried this and it fried the mobo :(

    This is a WHS build so all I'm powering is 3 hd's, cpu and fans.

    it wont hurt it ive tried with my board and i7 chip uses 147watts yours will use 95watts at the most four pins are less power than 8 pins so it wont fry your board,let me know how you get on,i think it slots into the top four sockets with the lever pointing towards the rear of the case
