But it looks like there is a plug in the second 4 pin connector. You are supposed to have an 8 pin.

I thought only one of them should have been used, the computer had been running with only 1x4 pin connected from the CPU but should I have been using both CPU 1 and 2?

Yes, according to that post. There is a clip on the side of the pin and a ridge on the side of the receptical. The clip should fit over the ridge. That orients the plugs correctly. Same for the 24 pin.

Well, what I meant it as, I had never unplugged the other 4 pin CPU connector because I thought I did not have to use the other one so I have only had been using CPU 1 from the power supply to connect and never the CPU 2 but the computer ran without CPU 2 connected and I will take new pictures with everything connected.

Be carefull, one of the last dual 4 pin connections, that I had to connect to the MB had to go at a 90 degree angle from the first 4 pin connector.

Doc, that was right about the clips and the ridge wasn't it? That's the way my boards have always been.

Don't quote me on this but I believe it to be correct, On the older boards there was only one 4 pin connector and this was different for AMD and Intel boards which meant that there were two 4 pin plugs on the PSU.
On later boards the 8 pin socket appeared this is essentially the AMD and Intel sockets side by side. On newer PSU's there is now an 8 pin plug. If you do not have the 8 pin plug it is possible to plug in the 2 4 pin plugs, Look very carefully at plugs and sockets to see which plug goes where as they have to be fitted correctly. This also applies to the locking catch on each plug, it must line up correctly.

I cannot answer why it may have worked before and not now. It may be wise to post pictures of the plugs and sockets so that we can agree on which plug goes where.

I think you are right. On both my Corsair PSU's there are 2 4 pin plugs side by side. My Intel board uses an 8 pin and my AMD 890 board used a 4 Pin.
