    Every power supply Ive seen allows an 8 pin plug to be split in 2. The 2 halves just unclip.
    That cap thing in the pic is irrelevant .
    Split the plug in 2 (unclip) , you now have a correct 4 pin plug .

    There are often other 6pin connectors on the Power supply, they are for video cards not mb .
    You may be looking at the wrong lead ?

    Bingo! I did not know that, and yes it does split, although that is not obvious that it can. So I now have connected it all up and the potentially fried mobo does POST, which was the whole point of the exercise. So my Ali Express purchase is now redundant, but I suspect I won't be able to cancel it.

    It is only irrelevant if you can't split the plug

    Whoops! That should be "It is only irrelevant if you can split the plug"

    You can cancel your Aliexpress order. As long as you are quick enough. Some vendors dont send for a few days while others will send the same day.

    From their site:

    Well my Ali Express order from 29 July arrived today. I'd basically given up on it as I'd never had any response to emails, but waddya know.
    Of course I don't actually need it now, but it can add to my box full of semi-useless junk.
    I notice that the item on the Ali Express webpage is now reduced in price to 1c.

    For the record, that's an inductor next to your connector, not a capacitor.

    Thanks for that. That increases my PC mobo parts knowledge from 3 parts to 4
