PSU/motherboard compatibility issue?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I started putting a list of parts together for my first PC build and ran into a possible compatibility issue between the PSU and motherboard.


The ASRock B550 Phantom Gaming 4/ac ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Corsair CXM (2015) 450 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it."


I don't plan on doing any extreme over clocking and I'm using a 1050 Ti for a GPU. Will this be an issue or should I try and find another PSU?


Here is the parts list for reference

You only need to plug the 8 pin as a single 8 pin eps can provide up to 384w of power and the extra one is used for heavy overclocking and with this board. You won't be able to do it either way 

And a ryzen chip won't even come close to that wattage. 

But going off topic a bit. If you can. Just get a b550 pro 4 and that'll be a lot better.

Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.






B550m TuF plus.

Hyper x rgb 8 gig stick. (MJR or CJR  i still don't know lol).

1650 super.
