"24 pin" ATX connector vs "20+4" pin ATX connector

I have an MSI B75A-B43 mobo (ATX, socket 1155), and I need a matching power supply. It has a 24pin main ATX power connector and an 8-pin 12V connector. Does that mean I can use power supplies listed as having a "20+4" pin main ATX connector and "4+4" pin 12V connector? Or does it have to say explicitly "24" pin and "8" pin?

  2. Hi. Yes you can; they're the same.
  3. Thank you! That's what I thought but I was feeling a little tentative about it. I appreciate your help.
