Hello all, I have a couple of questions regarding a new build. I have bought parts for a computer and I need some clarification. I have bought a EVGA SuperNova 850 G2 PSU and an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 Mobo. Since it has been a little while since I have built a new rig, my questions are: 1) does the EATX12V connector on the Mobo connect to the CPU1/CPU2 on the PSU? In addition 2) The PSU manual states "Do not attempt to plug an 8-pin PCI-E cable into a 6-pin connector without first detaching the two extra pins." I find this conflicting so therefore, my dumb question on this is, since the VGA on the PSU is 8-pin, do I just connect the 8-pin to that and connect the 6-pin (leaving the 2 extra pins detached) to my video card? Since my video card is a 6-pin. I just like to be sure is all.
