I currently have a Rosewill PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200 I am looking to upgrade to an i5 2500k with this motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138317 My psu has what says: 1 x 4+4Pin ATX12V/EPS12V Connector This motherboard says it has 2x 8pin cpu connectors..Is my psu combatible with what I am about to buy in terms of cpu/mobo? Will it work? Thanks again^^ More about : psu compatibility sandy bridge alvine a b ) Power supply a b V Motherboard March 28, 2012 1:18:58 PM can you link me to that motherboard? I have not seen a 1155 mobo requiring two 8 pin cpu power connectors. You will most likely see 4pin + 4 pin for the cpu power so yes your psu is compatible m 0 l Silvune a c 87 ) Power supply a b V Motherboard March 28, 2012 4:51:14 PM http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/motherboards/2011/06/2... Quote:The board will function with either one supplying power, but Biostar recommends that you use both sockets if you’re planning any heavy overclocking. There is more in that review about the two 8pin EPS12V sockets. However I would think you could get a different board for a similar that is just as good, if not better, which does not have that issue. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
