PSU and Mobo Compatibility

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, I have a question that I cannot find a definite answer for, even after googling and searching oc.net. I am building a budget build for a friend that is an upgrade from an AMD Socket-A-dinosaur-of-a-computer, like 8 years old. It's going to be used for basic computing/(very)light gaming atm, but will be very expandable for future use.

The PSU: COOLMAX CP-500T EPS12V 500W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817159040

The motherboard: MSI P6N SLI-FI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130082

My question: The PSU is specified as an EPS12V PSU. Does this mean it has an 8 pin(or 4+4) CPU power lead? Because in the specifications it says it has a 4-pin CPU power lead, yet in Newegg's pictures it seems like there are two 4-pin CPU power leads. Also, more confusing to me is a picture of the motherboard. Looking at the CPU power lead socket, it looks as if it is an 8-pin (EPS12V?) receptacle with 4 pins capped off. Does this mean it can accept 8-pin, but the uncapped sockets will accept a 4-pin CPU lead?

Also, if it helps, the CPU used will be:
Intel Pentium D 805 Smithfield 2.66GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116249

(and if anyone knows, is the above mobo c2d compatible? kind of off-topic but I just wondered.)

Thank you heavily for any assistance, I will feel like a tard nozzle if I had him order the wrong parts.
