You split the 8 pin CPU connector and insert the part that fits.

Be careful to not force it! Only one of the parts should fit.

HTH,

Try to power up the computer with only the psu and mobo conected (i.e. remove power from hdds, optical units, video cards etc). If it starts, one of the disconnected stuff is the culprit.

If it does not, then the problem is either the psu or the mobo.
