(Not Amiga Related but might be) PC PSU help

I need help about a PC PSU.I know this is not Amiga releated but maybe one of you have used for your Amiga..

I have a motherboard with a p8 4 pin connector* but I have a PSU that don't have that only the big P1 connector so what I am asking it what's the voltage of the p8 connector..

Does anyone know...??

*My P8 Connector has only 4 wires going into it 2 yellow and 2 black..

yellow is +12v and black is ground

They have been standard now since time began If you don't trust me then test them with a multimete, attach the + (red) wire from the multimeter to the yellow wire and the - (Black) wire from the multimeter to the black wire and it'll tell you what the voltage is.

The yellow wires are +12V DC and black wires are Ground (0V).

Edit: That settles it then.
