    Default 8 pin eps connector on motherboard 8 pin atx connector ?

    Hi, I' ve bought a z87m pro4 motherboard and a xfx pro series 550w, the psu has two 8 pin connectors, one is eps12V and the other one is a 4+4pin atx connector.

    On this motherboard the 8 pin connector is described as atx12V1, I'd like to know if both of the 8 pin connectors on the psu are suitable for this mobo or if only one of them is the correct one.

    Can I connect an eps12V connector on the atx12V1 connector on the mobo?

    Thanks

    Either cable setup will work, as long as you don't try to connect an 8-pin PCI-e connector into the motherboard's 8-pin atx12V1 connector.

    Take a close look at the 4+4-pin connectors and the ATX12V1 (aka EPS12V) connector and you will see that the left and right hand 4-pin layouts are slightly different.

    All about the various PC power supply cables and connectors has detailed information and pictures for computer connectors.
