Also why such an old power supply which has been discontinued a long time ago (reason for price being ridiculously high). Go with the newer RMX or RMi. Just so you know, you don't need 750 watts for this build. 550-650 is more than enough.

It does not require 2 8pin to run.

They are almost certainly on the same power plane and the CPU will not draw 200w+ to even validate the second cable.

I’m not sure why everyone all the sudden thinks you need 2x8pin for CPU power on consume motherboards, it’s ******* overkill unless you are extreme overclocking (and even then).

It will post with a single

It would take one hell of an OC to need that extra EPS cable.

LN2 or DICE

A single 8pin can do like 235w (ATX spec).

So yeah good luck getting your CPU to draw 200w+ without some hardcore solutions
