That is an 8 pin connection on the motherboard for the CPU. You'd want to use both of the 4 pin connectors.  Try and see if they snap together. I have a Seasonic PSU that also has 2 4pin connectors and a new MSI mobo, and that's what I had to do.

Yes, in the Manual it shows a 8 Pin CPU PWR1 connector. This is copied from the MSI Motherboard Manual:

thanks for the reply. when all else fails read the instructions. figured

out the pin sequence and which 4 pin connector was the main and it all came

together.

appreciate the help.

cheers!
