I purchased a MSI Z270 MPower Gaming Titanium mobo and a brand new Corsair RM 750i power supply,
CPU power 1 requires an 8pin and CPU power 2 requires a 4pin, but my PSU only has a 8pin power connector
is there a way to power up the remaining 4 pin slot without having to buy a new PSU ??

Hello,
CPU Power 2 with 4pin is required only when OC.

Aux 2 CPU power only needed for extreme overclocking. You can always buy an adapter, but you shouldn't need it.

I'd reallly wish people would read their manuals... :rtfm:
You only need 8 pin (CPU_PWR1) and 24 pin (ATX_PWR). Extra 4 pin (CPU_PWR2) is for extreme (LN2) overclocking, and even then, not always used.
