    You must be confused... the 6-pin connector is for connecting graphics cards... your power supply must have a 4-pin or a EPS 8-pin connector to plug into the 8-pin plug on the board.

    that 6 pin connector is for pci-e graphics cards. your psu has a 4-pin p4 12v mobo connector.

    it doesn't need the extra 4 unless you have a quad core. just plug the 4pin in.

    I think the 4-pin can handle the Allendale just fine. Isn't there a molex connector on the board too? Using that should compensate for the loss of not having 8-pin.

    no 4pin molex on the Blood Iron!

    Just the 24pin and the 8pin for mobo power!
