PSU's 8-pin EPS12v power connector to Mobo's 8-pin ATX12v power connector???

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" class="img lazy">

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...

  1. Yes the EPS 8 pin is the correct connector.
  2. Thank you for the clarification Sir. I thought it might have some incompatibility due to EPS-ATX terms...
  3. It is simply wrong to call it 8pin ATX.
  4. That is what it said on the spec "1 x 8-pin ATX 12V cpu power header"
  5. I have a similar issue, but the EPS12V pins are different shapes and will not locate in the ATX12V header.

    Did your EPS12V really fit?
