If your motherboard has an 8 pin, that simplifies your choice, as you won't need an extender with a splittable 4+4 male end.
I'm not sure which I need, which is why I was asking. I have two 4 pin connectors that go into the 8 pin. I'm assuming it's separated like that in case an matx board is used and you only need a 4 pin, but I'm not completely sure. That's one reason I was asking.
That's right. 4 pin and 8 pin are two standards for the 12V CPU power.
I was a little confused by the description of the CB-4M-8F. It turns out that the description is correct, but Newegg displays the wrong picture. The right one is here: 1st PC Corp.
As Phone Man writes, you don't want one of those.
The CB-8M-8F is the right sort, and it's splittable.
The $2 shipping on that cable isn't too bad. Sometimes Newegg charges more for shipping small parts than for the part. And they won't reduce shipping on combined orders. (I know that's due to their multiple warehouses, widely scattered around the US, but it's still an annoyance.)
