    Question eatxpwr & eatx12v connections

    I just bought an ASUS Strix z390-e gaming board and wanted to make sure I hooked it up correctly.

    It has eatxpwr & eatx12v connections. Do I need to hook up both of them? or is there any benefit of doing just one compared to the other?

    I will be using a evga supernova 1300 g2 80+ gold PSU.

    hey man. eatxpwr = 24 pin is essentially your Mobo power and eatx12v = 8 pin is essentially your CPU power. Some board have 2x 8 pin (2x eatx12v) and with this your CPU can draw more juice. But 1x 8pin must always be plug in (some high-end board require both 8pin ). So just plug both and ejoy your build.
