Possibly not, because then I remembered something about an older PSU I had. It also had just an 8-pin connector but to use it on a 4-pin mobo, I was able to split it apart, like so:
Anyway, is there some kind of adapter I can buy?
Or would it be possible for my to jimmy that old plastic plug off the old power supply and onto the wires of the new one? I do realize that the two power supplies would have to work the same way in order to do this, but I have no idea. Can anybody help me with this?
EDIT: somebody from another forum suggested this, could this be a simpler solution?
just plug in the 4 pins and let the other 4 pins slop over the side of the plug
