Default CPU power ATX_12V_2X4 and ATX_12V_2X2 ???

Hey, thanks for looking at my post.

Ive recently had to replace various PC components due to a faulty PSU wreaking havoc with in my old build.

Anyhow, the MOBO I am getting is an Aorus Z390 AORUS PRO with a i7 9700k. Powered by a Corsair RM850. I have noticed MOBO CPU power connections are ATX_12V_2X4 and ATX_12V_2X2.

From what I understand I will be fine only using the 12v 2x4 with no OC but I would like to also use the 2x2 as I plan on a fairly hefty OC.

Now, here I will demonstrate that I am a complete and utter noob

With my dead EVGA PSU the connections on the back were blatantly obvious. However, with the Corsair RM850 I am not sure of the labelling. I will attempt to attach an image of the back of the PSU showing where I want to plug the cables into. Red circles are the ones I wish to use. I have a blue circle of another that maybe I should use? ---------- Please note my artistic skills in doing this.



Advice please as I cant afford to build another PC

Those ports are exactly where you should be connecting the CPU EPS power cables to so that is perfectly fine.

Thanks for the reply.

OK I will use the connections I circled in red. One for the 2x4 and one for 2x2.
