My motherboard requires an 8-pin CPU power cable to be connected, other than the 24-pin main connector. My PSU (which is modular) has the same exact 8-pin connector, under which it is written CPU. My PSU doesn't have an 8-pin to 8-pin connector, but has instead an 8-pin to 4+4-pin. But as you can see in the images below, the shape on 2 pins are different.
Meanwhile the pins on the motherboard and on the PSU are the same.
Will this make a difference? Can I connect one end to the PSU or the motherboard without damage independently?
