I got a RX-530SS PSU from Newegg, but it has no CPU power connectors?

So I recently ordered a RX-530SS Power supply unit from Newegg, but here's my problem. I looked inside the box, and all I found was :

1 x 20+4 pins Main Connector
1 x 4+4 pins ATX 12V/EPS 12V Connector
2 x 6+2 pins PCI-E Connectors
6 x 5 pins SATA Connectors
3 x 4 pins Peripheral Connector
1 x 4 pins Floppy Connector

There isn't a 8, 6 or four pin CPU power connector in here at all. I am assuming I can use a PCI Express power connector if I can find some kind of PCI-E to 4 Pin adapter, but I can't find any. What should I do?


RESOLVED : I was actually really stupid and found out that the CPU cables were hidden in a bundle with the 20+4 connector. Thanks for your help!

    The PSU comes with 2 cables attached from the power supply itself (Not the modular cables). One is the 24 Pin and there's another one, that is the CPU 8 Pin conector (or 4 Pin, it can be turned into a 4+4 Pin)
  2. Wait a second, you don't need a power cable for CPUs since they draw their power from the motherboard...
  3. 1 x 4+4 pins ATX 12V/EPS 12V Connector
    That's it.

    Uhh.....
  4. Plug in the 20 + 4 Main connector into the 24-pin slot on the ( usually ) right side of the motherboard.
    Plug in the 4 + 4 into the 8-pin slot ( usually ) at the top of the motherboard.
