20-pin on PSU, 24-pin on MOBO, spare 4-pin

Hey guys, I have a 400 W CODEGEN PSU, Model No. CG-ML2. The motherboard I am buying has a 24-pin connector while my PSU has a 20-pin connector and two 4-pin connectors.

I know I can plug a 20-pin into a 24-pin connector without issue on the aging motherboard I have now, but what about on a modern Mobo? If so, do I use the 4-pin in combination in combination with the 20-pin?

Its a crappy old psu, its older than 13 years, I wouldn't even use a Evga G2 that was 13 years old, it doesn't even have a sata power cord, don't use it.

Actually, it does have SATA power XD

And it's hardly used. I plan to upgrade to a proper PSU in time though.

Is it possible to use a 4-pin in combination with the 20-pin? the 4-pin I mention seems to be on the same bundle the 20pin is on.

EDIT: Nevermind, I just noticed the 20pin and 4pin actually attatch together.
