MSI gaming edge 12pin power connectors

Hi all.

In regards to the 8+4 pin power on a lot of modern motherboards, are these both needed to be powered or can you use just the 8 pin? Reason I ask is that I'm about to pair this board with a 3700x (upgrading from a 7 year old system). My current Corsair cx650w PSU only has the 8pin.

If so I'll still consider upgrading it but at least I can do it at a later date when funds are more freely available.

Thanks in advance, the help us much appreciated. (Looking to purchase tonight).... 😬
