PSU and motherboard compatibility

Hey guys,

It's my first time building a PC and I'm in the middle of picking parts for it. My chosen motherboard is the ASUS Rampage II Extreme and it has an EATX12V power socket. However, my chosen power supply (Corsair CMPSU-1000HX) only has an EPS12V power chord (corsair states that it supports ATX12V 2.2 and EPS12V).

Is there a compatibility problem here? Should i get another power supply?

  1. it should be compatible, PSU are standard, specialy high-end PSU like corsair, should be no problem.
  2. I'd think so as well but I'm not certain and it would suck to get the parts and find them incompatible.

    I don't know if ATX12V is the same as EATX12V, if it is i guess it should be ok since I downloaded the 1000HX manual and it says that it supports ATX12V 2.2 and EPS12V
  3. EATX12v probably means its the 12 pin connector, some old boards have 8 pin power connector i think. so EATX12v = EPS12v, just different marking. from the photo of rampage II extreme, its 12 pin, so no problem, it will fit, its standard connector, the HX1000 has it.
