Specs: Windows 7, soon 10 , i3/8gb
There’s a N on one of my 4pin CPU plugs and the other 4pin plug has nothing on it. I can only use one. Should I plug in the one marked N?

✔ Best Answer
Look online for your power supply manual, it should be marked. The two 4's should snap together for when you need an 8pin power plug.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Please get your terminology right - THIS is a CPU. The 8-pin socket is on the motherboard. The plug you're connecting is what powers the CPU.

I think I supplied you with this link before:
Notice the shape of the plastic around the individual pins. They can only be plugged in one way into the socket they were designed to fit. All you have to do is compare the socket to the plug & you should be able to figure it out.
