PSU/Motherboard

I have a Micro-star 945P MS-7176 ver:1.A mainboard and a North Q 'NQ4775' 400w psu.
On assembling the various bits & pieces on the mainboard, I have come up against a problem.
The main 24pin plug fits ok but according to the supplied mainboard manual, there should be a power supply fitted to 2 other sockets as well, namely: JPW1 (8pin) and ATX2 (4pin). The manual states that all 3 connections should work together to ensure stable operation of the mainboard. The problem is supply cables from the PSU. There is not a cable with an 8pin plug on it for the JPW1 socket. There is a cable with a 4pin plug but no socket for it on the mainboard.
Also, can I use any of the other power cables for the ATX2 socket?

Any help with this would be appreciated.

does jpw1 not refer to the cable that goes from the motherboard to to cpu.

Hi citadel

jpw1 refers to the connector attached to the mainboard.
