8 pin or 4+4 pin CPU connection ?
 
680i mobo with a Q6600 proc.
what's the diff between the single 8 pin and the 4+4 pin (in combined mode)
if there is a diff, more importantly, which one should i be connecting ?

8 pin is for power hungry cpus. If you can use it I suggest to use it :D

technically 4 vs 8 pin comes down to the fact that the 8pin gives you more stable voltage with less drop.
