    The top picture I can't tell very well, but it looks like a sata cable which connects to a hard drive. can you take a better picture of the whole inside of the case? It is hard to get any perspective of what I am looking at. The 8 pin that plugs into the CPU power connector should say CPU on it, or they usually do. There should be a clip on one side, feel where it plugs in. There should be a small ridge on one side of where it plugs in. The clip goes over that ridge, to make sure you have it in the proper orientation. If the cable you have says PCIE, that is not the right cable for there.

    Was there nothing plugged into the 8 pin receptacle before?

    Don't force any of the cables in. They have to be in the exact correct position, but when they are they will go in with very little force.

    I think this one does, but you are right. This one has an 8 pin but only 4 pins connected, I believe. What do you think, Oscar?
