I ordered a computer today that I've been researching and updating for months and am going over everything one last time to make sure it's all compatible, and I have one question: is the 4+4 pin connector the one I will use to power the CPU?

Here is the board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Here is the PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The PSU seems like a great deal but the lack of feedback on it makes me suspicious that maybe there's something about its features that people are noticing right away and not buying it. I'm wondering if that's the case with the CPU power connector.

I'd send that power supply back - Coolmax is one of the absolute worst PSU makers in the industry. It's never a good idea to rely on stores for product reviews because the people reviewing products on stores don't have access to professional testing equipment.

You don't have to worry about compatibilty - all Z77 motherboards use the same +-24 pin power connector and +-8 pin voltage connector.

Ultra as a brand tier 1? No. But as azeem40 showed with the jonnygugu link they did actually sell at least 1 model that didn't suck!

Personally I would not buy one, even one rated that highly but in general I don't trust Andyson their "good" OEM. Their basic models are made by ShenZhen RuiSheng Yuan and I don't have to tell you how good a thing that is ( not ). :sarcastic:

After being here as long as I have that really opened my eyes to purchasing good / bad power supplies, I'll never again purchase one because I think it's a good value. You have to look closer.
