Hello, I started to build my first PC (+ some old parts), currently I have a "Asus Prime A520M-K", "AMD Ryzen 7 5800x", GTX 1050ti, and watercooler "be quiet loop 240".
For the PSU I was looking into a "xpg core reactor 850w" but I've notice that my motherboard's manual says it needs a "ATX 12V 8 pin with especifications 2.0 (or above)" (though the website says EATX 12V), and this PSU has ATX 12v 4+4 pin cables.
I want to know if this PSU will work with what I currently have or do I need to look into a PSU with the same ATX cable?
(Sorry if this question is a bit dumb, I'm new to all of this)

they're the same. Basic pin is 4 pin, they got 4 4pin 12v cpu pwr.

I see thank you! so I should use the 4+4 as an 8 pin and connect both to the mobo?

Also, should I worry about the "specifications 2.0 (or above)" or that is only for really old PSUs?
