Solved!

I want to change the power supply, but can a 8-pin connector fit in the 4-pin slot?

700-509c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, 

 

I have a HP Envy 700-509C and I replaced the graphic card. However, I bought another power supply (Corsair CX 600 : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028&cm_re=corsair_cx600-_-17-139-028-_-Pr...) because the graphic card requires more power. I ran into a trouble, the last part was the 4-pin connector on the motherboard. There was no cord with only 4-pin, however there is a 8-pin connector and it says CPU on it. I tried it and it does plug in but there the other half (4-pin) hanging out. My question is, will it burn my motherboard? If no, will the computer work? 

 

Thank you

@Kevin828, welcome to the forum.

 

If you look at the "Specifications" in the link that you provided, you will see that it lists a 1 x 4+4 - Pin - ATX12V connector.  This means that you will use one of the 4-Pin connectors only.
