Was looking at the Corsair Professional Series Gold PSUs and seen that they offer 2 EPS Connectors. Never seen a motherboard that required 2. Does anyone know of a motherboard that requires 2?

There is no use for two EPS connectors if you only have 1 CPU. That connector was added to supply power to the CPU and it can deliver over 300W (don't know the exact specification). A single CPU can't touch that limit so there is no need for two.

You really only need 1 connector per processor.
