Hi guys, I am installing a new motherboard, the Asus Z97-A. My PC wouldn't show anything on the screen, and I found out it was because I didn't plug in the thing that powers my CPU. There is a spot that is labeled EATX 12V. I do not have a proper connector for it so I need to buy one.


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00P0BFPQI/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3FU01621667KK (which will take till late May to ship.


Or http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-6in-Pin-Power-Adapter/dp/B002O21XHQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428874446&sr=8-1&keywords=8pin+atx (Which will ship really quickly.)


I just don't know if both will work or not.

The second one is what you want.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
