PS has 24pin + 8 pin - MB has 24pin + 4pin

Specs: Windows XP, Phenom II x4 965 BE
I have a Zuess 650W ST65ZF PS which has a 24 pin power connection + an 8 pin ATX12V connector.

My MB - A780L3G has a 24 pin & a 4 pin.

I know PS's with 20 pin & 4 pin can go together into the 24 pin.
I know the 24 pin can plug into the 20 pin.
I also understand that I need to plug something into the 4 pin if the MB has one like mine does.

So, the question is can my 8 pin on the PS plug into the 4 pin on the MB much like you can plug a 24pin PS into a 20pin MB or am I out of luck & this PS won't work?

Just plug the 8-pin plug into the 4-pin socket on the board & let the other 4 pins overhang.
