Asus ROG STRIX B550-F Compatibilty problems!

I am Trying to get the Asus ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING ATX AM4 motherboard but it says that it isnt compatible with the Corsair CXM 650 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply. I am doing this through PC Part Picker and it says "The Asus ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Corsair CXM 650 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 was wondering if this means anything important or if i need to look for a different power supply or if there is a way to solve this.  

This is for my first build so i am trying to make sure everything is right!

The extra 4-pin is totally unnecessary for a daily AM4 system - you don't need to plug it in, and don't need to worry if your power supply doesn't have it.

 

What I'm wondering though is what components do you plan on powering? If you really needed 650W of power, I'd probably look at something a little better than a CXM.

I agree, maybe go with 750w instead, but 650 is enough for now. Also go with a B550 Aoros pro instead, there is still issues with Intel's 2.5g Lan.

Ok so go for 750W and a B550 Aoros Pro. Will that solve my issue?
