Default CPU 8 Pin Power Cable Compatible?

First post to the forums so I don't know if this is in the right area or not

So, basically I want to upgrade my system, I got it about a year ago but nearly all of the stuff inside is a bit old (5-6 years) so I was thinking of upgrading to a Ryzen since I have an FX cpu. So when my motherboard and cpu arrived there was an 8pin connector on the motherboard:MOBO 8PIN Connector.jpg
I found out that I had another 4pin connector for my cpu and so I attached them both to make a 4+4 pin connector:
4 + 4 CPU Connector CS750M.jpg
Would this work if I connected it to the motherboard? Thanks for anybody who can help!

The EPS12V cable is usually able to be split into ATX12V for the older 4-pin and together they make up the full 8-pin.

Most motherboards today have a single 8-pin EPS12V cable but elite boards may have a secondary ATX12V or EPS12V connector for additional current

The CS750M should have the cables for one 8-pin EPS12V

Okay, thank you for that! I was hoping that I wouldn't have to get another cable. I was using the older ATX12V 4pin for my old motherboard and using the other 4pin they make up the 8pin EPS12V cable that I can use for my new one.

Don't mix cables from different PSUs.

I'm not mixing cables with another PSU, I only have one. I got the PC second hand so I don't have any extra cables for the PSU. The other 4 pin I was talking about is already attached to the PSU
