Post RMi 750 and 4+8 pin CPU power

Hi, I'm building a new PC for a friend with an Asus Z490 board which has 4+8 pins for CPU power. I Initially thought of a RMi 750 for the PSU but I read it does not have the extra 4-pin power. Is there another RMi model with it or a similarly specced-priced (Corsair) alternative?

One option you have, (others will chime in here with other options), is to go ahead and get that RM750i you have already selected. Then if it doesn't come with the cables you need (I haven't researched so can't be certain) you have the option of purchasing from Cablemod.

Below is what I have just checked as being an option for that power RM750i supply.

The extra 4-pin is not required if you will not be doing any extreme overclocking.

Only the 8-pin power is required for the motherboard to operate properly.

RM850i has two EPS12V 4+4 cables.

But, like @JonKrmr said, you don't need both connectors on the motherboard unless you're doing some pretty extreme overclocking.

If having them both populated just makes you feel better, you can buy an additional cable here: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Catego...U/p/CP-8920141

EDIT: I see you in OZ. Try going to the regionalized Corsair website for your country and search for "CP-8920141".

Yeah. You don't have your location field populated.

Did you search for "CP-8920141" as suggested?

Yeah, thanks. Decided to go for the RM850i in the end, it's around $200.
