The extra 4 pin CPU power is not needed if you are not planning on extreme overclocking of the CPU and giving lots of voltage to do so.

Usually LN2 or extreme cooling overclocking where CPU wattage is through the roof.

The 8 pin CPU power connector can be split in half to make two 4 pin so the 8 pin connector would work but from the chart you linked, it appears no 8 pin add on cable is available for your model PSU.

Again, the 4 pin CPU power is not required for anything other than extreme overclocking\over volt of the CPU.
