tx850m not compatible with taichi x470 ? no 4pin 12v?

Hi all! I have an asrock taichi x470 motherboard. It (and several other motherboards) have both an 8 AND a 4 pin 12v connector. The tx850m only has an 8 pin 12 volt connector. Its curious, because the modular part of the tx850m has plugs labeled (4+4 cpu) but, only has PCIE cables to plug into those plugs. :(

 

Am I missing a cable in the PSU box? Doesn't look like it from the manual.

 

any help here?

 

Thanks!

You'd have to get that cable separately. The additional 4-pin (or, in some cases, 8-pin) CPU power connector is something that's really quite new on mainstream desktop systems and started after this PSU was released. Traditionally, it's been reserved for HEDT systems and, thus, higher-end PSUs than the TX series.

They Type 4 EPS 12V should work with that PSU. I would suggest that you confirm that with Corsair support.
