Can I use a p4 connector power supply with my p8 connector motherboard?

Q: I just got a new motherboard and it uses a p8 CPU connector, but my psu only has a p4 connector. But my CPU is only a AMD Sempron 140 at 45w. Could I only use the p4 connector, if so should I put it on the top 4 or bottom 4. Also, I saw molex to p4 connector, could I use that.
