Thanks for the tip on the connector but I another poster on a different board said that I should ether cut the 8 pin connector into two or see use half on the 4 pin mb connector. Well last night I tried putting half on and it fit. There was just enough clearance (but only one way). Board powered up and everything seems fine.
What brand wattage is the PSU?
It's a SILVERSTONE 650W.
Now for the funny party - to answer your question about what brand psu I had I had to go to my Newegg account to look it up. In the review section look at what I found -
Also the one of the 8 pin connectors is actually two 4 pins clipped together. Took me far to long to figure that out.
Other Thoughts: Why did it have to have two 4 pin CPU connectors clipped together? Seems weird to me
Looks like I wasn't the only confused person.
Thanks for the help.
