You will be able to leave half the connector hanging off, assuming the board has enough clearance. EPS12V connectors don't have anything that would prevent this, unlike 8-pin PCI-E connectors which actually have a piece of plastic that prevents them from being inserted into a 6-pin socket.

That is the answer I was looking for.
