Best and safest bet is to just check the manual for your motherboard.

P3 is an optional connector - Your motherboard may not have a plug for it. Are you sure it was plugged in with your previous power supply? What is the model of the motherboard?

The P3 connector is an 8-pin connector for cpu power - some motherboards have an 8-pin socket, while others have the 4-pin one.  Use one or the other, as appropriate for your motherboard.
