Hey guys, I was wondering if my PSU and Motherboard I want to buy are compatible.

The very short answer is yes.

The bigger question is whether your other componets (cpu, ram, heatsink, etc...) are compatible with the motherboard and whether your graphics card(s) have any special requirements from the power supply e.g. 6-pin and 8-pin aux power supply.

Hello... you require a 8 pin EPS motherboard/CPU connector with that motherboard... I am un-able to determine if that powersupply has it from their Websites.

The PSU appears to have the necessary 4-pin/4-pin or 8-pin connector if you look at the enlarged pic of the cables on the Newegg site.
