I am just realizing that besides the standard 8-pin CPU connector, the Mobo has an extra 4-pin CPU connector. My old PSU does not have any extra CPU connections, just the one 8-pin and 24-pin.
I’ve read around that the 4-pin is “optional” however the Asrock manual simply states to connect the 4-pin. Nothing about optional. Anybody with this mobo have any experience?
My other thought is, I do have a suite of de-pinning and soldering tools and that I would take a 6-pin PCI cable and re-wire it 4-pin CPU. It’s all 12v right? It’s just the pins are different. Thoughts?
