Anybody who know that they are for and how importarnt, If I dont  overclock my computer. Does the type of cable come whit the mainboard or the PSU or is it som extra cable I have to buy?

They're regular EPS connectors. It is unclear if the mobo will work if you only have one connected and not both. I have the same configuration on a X299 TUF mark 2, and got a Corsair HX1000i which does have two EPS power outputs. I'd aim to find a PSU that has the two connectors, which will probably be limited to higher end models.

i haven't seen boards that won't turn on without 2x8 connectors. except if you're running something really high end in it, you probably won't need that much power

just fyi if you are looking at skylake X. you probably dont want it, there are literally better products for you for cheaper.

Do you have any suggestions for some really good mainboards too 9900k and the Threadrippers? Yes I know that's a hard questions to answer. But then I can get your opinion about it and the I can look at it if that is something for me.

 

Let's say you should buy a new mainboard to day. Only thing it have to be a atx or eatx

The best boards to buy would be the MSI MEG Godlike/Creation or one of the top end Gigabyte boards. 

 

Have a look through here. You can get some ideas for which to pick

 

In the end its all about the budget.
