Where does the CPU connector plugin on the Power Supply?

Seems like kind of a simple questions, but based off the picture here, where should my CPU power cable be plugging into? I see two areas for a cpu 4/4 connector on this power supply?

    There is no CPU connector. You may have 1 or 2 motherboard connectors, in which case you would plug them in there.
  2. Its called the EPS connector.....Id suggest where it says 4+4 CPU

    Another reason why making an absolutely necessary cable modular is a silly concept.

    hmmm thought it was called a CPU connector, but the one at the top of the motherboard near the CPU, that is 8 pins, a block of 4 and another block of 4, where would this connect?

    You mean the one at the bottom or at the top they both say 4+4 CPU?

    You can connect them to the 4+4 in the bottom left of your PSU, good luck.
