Hi everyone,

I just got all my components in and started building the system and got stuck at the PSU installation. The PSU I bought is the:
Antec TruePower 750W Modular

And my motherboard is:
Asus P7P55D-E Pro

Now my PSU has the following connectors on the 12v rail:

20+4 Motherboard
4-pin ATX12V
8-pin EPS12V

and then all the Molex and SATA and PCI-E rails and modulars.

My Motherboard needs the EATXPWR 24-pin (Check)
And then the EATX12V 8-pin (unsure) is the EPS12v another name for EATX12V? And are they compatible or should I be using the 4-pin ATX12v?

Thank you for you help

Fewf so I just plug the 8-Pin EPS12V and everything will be A-OK?

It's the proper connector, can't say for sure that everything will be A-OK, there's too many variables.
