Power supply connector question

i recently picked up one of these PSU's

and i am looking at picking up an asus p8z77-v LE motherboard, combined with an intel i5 2500k cpu.

my problem is that the connectors on the psu above dont seem to match the cpu power socket on the motherboard, yet i see reveiws saying they're using the combination of this psu with motherboards that have the exact same socket configuration as the p8z77-v LE.

will i need to get a different power supply, or will it work with that board?

  1. Best answer
    It will work:
    1 x 24-pin EATX Power connector(s)
    1 x 8-pin ATX 12V Power connector(s)
    1 x M/B 20+4 PIN = 24-pin
    1 x CPU 4+4 PIN = 8-pin
    The 20+4 can be connected together to one 24-pin board connector, or separately, for some boards that have a 20-pin connector. The same for 4+4.
  2. it'll work even though one of the 4 pin connectors doesnt look anything like whats on the motherboard socket?
  3. You will connect both 4-pin connectors to the board's 8-pin one.,1
  4. i'm aware of that, but one of the 4 pin connectors looks like it wont fit into the socket
