Hey guys,
Looking for a quick answer if possible.
I had purchased this case http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811129046 as well as this motherboard http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128445 for an htpc I was building. The power supply that was included in the case did not have a connection for the cpu on the motherboard. So I am now thinking about getting this case http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811129054 and buying a power supply for it. However now I am confused as to what type of power supply i need to get to insure I have that 8 pin plug for the CPU power. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to figure it out real quick and order what I need within the hour.
Thanks,
Cody

If that case takes a standard PSU then just look up psu on new egg and check the details. they will tell you what type of plugs it has This is an example : http://www.newegg.co...82E16817371015

Click on the details tab on that page and scroll down and it will show you the types of connectors.
