should be fine. this processor is not very power hungry so the 4 pin cpu power connector should work fine if your board supports that.
Thanks OJ, already sort of sorted it out. in the end i decided to turn my psu up the other way so the psu fan is facing the mobo.
I saw a few videos on youtube and noticed it, so i thought i would give it ago seeing as my case is slightly bigger than the one i saw with the psu mounted that way (and some antec cases dont give you the option?). i think it should be fine like that though i was a little worried about airflow but no problems as of yet... and besides my room is very dusty so it probably (well definately) wouldnt do the psu any good sucking up a load of dust. just waiting on a fan controller so i can tweak that and its better with the fan facing up i now have room for a 120mm bottom fan again! with it facing down the modular cables were too tight so i tried it with an 80mm fan but i didnt like it... lol. but its connected up with the p8 now
Again thanks for the help
