Default Big PSU/MOBO worry!

I got my MOBO the other day, I then plugged the connector in to the socket. Then I noticed that the plug was two pins short for the socket! Will this still work or will I hyave to buy a new PSU?

Well you can use it without the adaptor i just forget how. Try pluging it in the middle and leave 2 pins free on each side.

Well im in no hurry. This PC isnt going to be finished for over two months. Is there any way of turning on your PSU without it having to be conected to the motherboard? And why am I the only person to have a 600 watt one???
