Solved PSU standards question Tags: Power Supplies ATX Components Product Last response: May 9, 2012 2:09 PM in Components Share Toregon May 9, 2012 1:50:24 AM Hello , This might sound like a weird question but here it goes. I need to buy a new PSU and a 750W will be all I need. According to my motherboard ( GA-Z77X-UD5H ) it has a ATX_12V_2X4 port. Does that mean that when I buy my PSU it needs the following ? 2 x 4-Pins ATX 12V or does a 1 x 8-Pin EPS 12V fit ? What I am wondering now is if Thermaltake TRX-750M is compatible with this board. Thank you More about : psu standards question popatim a b ) Power supply May 9, 2012 2:37:09 AM yes, in a PSU with two 4 pin connectors they will fit together to form a single 8 pin connector. A 4 pin is a 2x2 and an 8 pin is 2x4 arrangement, What they mean by 1x8 pin EPS is that there is one 8pin (in 2x4 form) connector. m 0 l Best solution WR2 a c 139 ) Power supply May 9, 2012 10:11:27 AM Thermaltake TRX-750M is a compatible PSU.
