Found a nice cheap PSU on sale.  I saw its on B+ tier on the tierlist.  My only question is after looking at the amazon page I cannot find if it has a 4+4 Cpu connecter.  Is it just 4 or is it 8 pin? Does anyone know?

For reference, this is the entire cable set that comes with this PSU:

Spoiler

(Keep in mind some of these have '0' at 'Number of cable(s) included).

Basically if you multiply "Connector(s) per cable" by "Number of cable(s) included", you know how many plugs you have.

The second cable is relevant for your question.

You get two cables, that both have a single 4+4/8 pin EPS connector on it.

If you need the 8 pin? just plug them both in togehter. Only need 4 pin? unclip the two parts.

8 pin CPU breaks into a 4+4 pin unless you get custom cables or something usually.

SO does this specific PSU come with a 4+4 connecter?

Yah, it seems to come with two of them in this case.

what about this

???

That's two connectors next to each other. One is 8pin and the other is 4pin.

As you can see in the post above the 8pin included with their power supply is 4+4 and will split apart to use as a 4pin or be joined together to use as an 8pin.
