What a pain in the proverbial
In answer to your question asked via PM;
on the mother board it has 2 x 4 pin slots which corresponds with the 2 x 4 pin cpu cables on the psu, my graphics card (now a Gainward gtx760 phantom) also has the same inputs along with the cables from the psu. the question is, do i need to connect all the 4 pin cables to the motherboard and the graphics card or just 1 x 4 pin to each?
The two Xs 4 pin from the PSU should both be inserted into the 8 pin ATX socket on the MB, the 2 Xs 4 pin type connections will often clip together to make a single 8 pin connector.
The power supply for you video card will also come from the PSU and there should have been two adapter cables shipped with the card, both of these also need connecting.
