The PSU ill be purchasing a Seasonic X650, it has a
1 x 4 Pin ATX12V connector
2 x 8 Pin EPS12V connector

The motherboard is Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H. the spec it has is
1 x 8-pin ATX 12V cpu power header

" alt="" class="imgLz frmImg " />

So is it safe to plug the PSU's 8 Pin EPS12V connector to the Mobo's 1 x 8-pin ATX 12V cpu power header?
Or, is it safe to connect PSU's 4 Pin ATX12V connector to the Mobo's 8-pin ATX 12V cpu power header?

To make it short, Is it safe to plug an EPS12v connector to ATX12v header?

Thanks guys... Please help...

Thank you for the clarification Sir. I thought it might have some incompatibility due to EPS-ATX terms...

It is simply wrong to call it 8pin ATX.

That is what it said on the spec "1 x 8-pin ATX 12V cpu power header"
