    Could anyone please, tell me, if I need a 4 pin EATX 12V cable for the mainboard Asus Maximus Hero xl ?
    I have 1 x 8 pin EATX 12V and the other one with 4 pin, which is free
    Did read the manual, but can't understand exactly
    Thank you

    Usually the 8 pin will be fine by itself. Some CPU's will call for both to be connected

    I have the I7 9700K OC to 5 GHz
    Should I connect this 4 pin cable, maybe ?

    If your pc is stable there is no need, the connector is mostly for extra juice for high end overclocking but if yours is running fine it is not needed.
