I am troubleshooting new computer system. MSI 970A-G46 AMD 9 Series AM3+Motherboard and AMD FX-4130 3.8GHZ Quad
Core AM3+ Unlocked CPU. Purchased bareboard system from TigerDirect. I also purchased a MSI Radeon HD 5450 1GB DDR3
PCIe w/HDMI Low Profil. Power supply had a 24-pin power but no 8-pin power connection for CPU on motherboard. My first
question would the 24-pin connection provide power to CPU without having to use a 8-pin power connection. When I power
up computer, not getting any power to monitor. I tried two different monitors and they both are good. Has anyone seen this
problem? :hello:

There is a black 8 pin EPS connector between the cpu and the blue video output on the back of the motherboard

I know where the JPWR2 ATX 8-pin power connector is located. The power supply
came with a 20-pin/4-pin connector, but no 8-pin connector. Unable to combine
two 4-pin connectors because unavailable with power supply. Question, will the motherboard power up the CPU with the 24-pin connection?? Do I have to order
a power supply with a 24-pin and a 8-pin power connection?

that fx processor has 125W TDP

afaik, for 125W cpu, 8 pin is a must
get this quality psu
corsair 430/500/600
or XFX 450/550
seasonic 450/above
anything you can afford

for most 65-77W cpu, 4 pin is okay
