Guys,can you please guide on how to re-pin the 8 pin CPU connector. Im using Cougar GX1050W. But the CPU connector was cut off. It's a bit long story. So now I need to re-pin by using the old connector. Is it I just need to solder the wire onto the metal pin and insert into the connector ? Or I need to check the voltage or whatever relate to it before using the PSU ? Currently my mobo support 4 pin only,but the wire got 8 wire, so which one should place the wire into the connector. The 8 wire is 4 yellow with green line and 4 black wires.

Yellow is the 12v positive, Black is the negative.

Most of the time you can plug the 8 pin into the 4 pin motherboard and leave 4 unused pins hang over the connector.

What are you planning on using for pins to repin the connector?
Do you have the old connector?
Are there wires still connected to it?

Any pictures you have would be helpful.
