I'm fairly sure it does come with 2 like the AX850, But he may be using SLI or CF which cancels out the second 8pin plug for the CPU

I don't see how it would cancel out, as PCI-E 8-pin connector is different than an EPS plug. If he uses an EPS connector on a graphics card, things wont be pretty.

Go read some reviews on them, They all state that using the second EPS plug for the CPU will cancel out the use of cf/sli or vice versa..

Edit: On the AX850, Which I will assume the AX1200 would be the same.

I think you can run it with a single 8pin ...the extra 8 pin is if your doing heavy duty overclocking and want to juice up the power big time...same with the extra pcie power connecter is not needed unless overclocking graphics extremely tongue.gif

Iv seen this question asked before...up to you if you really want to plug in the extra power pins..using 1 8pin should work just fine..
