  1. well further looking into this psu makes me think it wont even work for my motherboard. The new egg site says it has 1 x 12V(P4) 1 x 12V(8Pin) but the antec site says only a 8 pin. I need a four pin for my motherboard so now Im looking at buying this one...

    Any feedback would be appreciated before I make my purchase.
  2. The BP550 has a 4+4 connector

    Either unit would be fine for your specs
  3. thanks for the reply's... I'll take both of your word on it that it does have a 4+4. Supermuncher85 says that they are using the same psu so it must. I did chat with newegg Customer Service and the only thing she would say is that it comes with what is pictured and couldn't tell me if it did have a 4pin or not.
