PSU Connector issue

Last response: in Components

I bought a new PSU with the following connectors:
1 x Main connector (20+4Pin)
1 x 8 Pin EPS 12V
1 x PCI-E
4 x SATA
3 x Peripheral
1 x Floppy

My mobo needs the following:
ATX 24-Pin power connector
4-pin ATX 12V power connector

I plugged in the 24 pin into the motherboard, but I noticed that I still need to plug in 4 pin for CPU.
What exactly am I supposed to do? Am I screwed?

Any help is appreciated.

Hi. The plug you're looking for is the 1 x 8 Pin EPS 12V listed above which is really two detachable ATX12V connectors (4+4).

Ah, thank you. Didn't think it would work that way.
