Maximus V Formula Power
So I bought a Maximus V Formula. It should be here tomorrow. I seem to have misplaced the 4 pin power connector on my PSU so I only have the 8 pin. Is this completely necessary? Do I need to plug in both the 8 pin and the 4 pin? I'm keeping the same 2600k I have in my Maximus IV Extreme, same RAM, same everything. I plan to get a new PSU at the end of August. Can I get away with this until then? Is it safe?

I found I could get higher stable overclocks with more power plugs plugged into the mobo.

However, I think it should be ok to run your system with a single 4 pin, but you may have to use stock clocks.

"so I only have the 8 pin" all that is required
8 + 4 is only required for sub zero oc it seems
