Yes. The 8 pin should just slide apart. Look closely under good light.

Welcome to this board.

thanks for the welcome.
now, i tried splitting them up, and when i plug it in to the mobo, nothing will start. what does that indicate? dead board? dead cpu? without the 4 pin, the fans start up, but there is no post. i feel like Dr. House.... anyone have a differential diagnosis lol?

You might have plugged in the wrong side of the split up 8pin. That's the only thing I can think of that you might have did.

You didn't accidentally pour a bucket of water on your PC right?

The two halves are keyed differently so it should be impossible to plug in the wrong half.

Some ideas:

http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000607.htm

http://www.pctechnicians.ca/help/pcguide.html

My method is to test 1 item at a time outside the case(just mb, mb+proc, add ram, add video.) and listen for beep codes. Your motherboard manual should have them listed. Re-seat all power plugs. Did you remove protective plastic from proc. cooler? It also helps to have known working parts on hand to try. I've also seen several times that the problem is a short to case. Improperly seated cooler, non-working fan.

well, the pc was working for almost 2 years, then all of a sudden, it wouldnt start up. i bought a new psu (the silverstone), but that didnt fix it. i kinda think the board is dead, im wondering about the cpu.

Do you know what the board is you have there?If it's old check it for bad capacitors (caps),you're looking for swelling tops or leaks.

Another thing is does it give any beeps when you switch it on?

Once you've tried all this and what ReeL said your next step is a minimal build.Assemble just the motherboard,cpu with heatsink and fan,gfx,psu,memory,keyboard and mouse outside of the case on a plastic sheet.Make sure you earth yourself before handling the components.
