Default Two, 4-pin power CPU connector question

I'm new here and I'm sure this has been answered elsewhere, so I apologize.
I have the TX650W unit and it has been outstanding from day one.
I just replaced my ASUS mobo with an ASRock that has an 8-pin CPU connector.
The problem is that my Corsair has two, 4-pin plugs, but only on fits the 8-pin mobo connector.
I'm told that all eight pins should be utilized on this motherboard for increased CPU stability.

Would I be ok with just the one 4-pin plug connected, or do I really need the 8-pin plug?
If so, is there an adapter I can buy or will I have to get another PSU?

Thanks.........

What a noob, I got it all 8-pins connected.
When I started the build yesterday, the one 4-pin plug would just not fit.
I searched the forums here a bit more extensively today and found my answer.
The rounded pins do fit into the square holes on the 8-pin CPU MB connector.

Sorry about the alarmed post, now I'm gonna try to help the other poster with the same problem.

Cheers
