My motherboard is an ATX form factor but uses a 24-pin EATX power connector. My PSU has an ATX connector (Corsair CX 600W Click Here). Will the PSU go along with the motherboard? Just want to be sure.

It's the best 550w PSU on the market based on the award winning Super Flower Leadex Gold series with a 7 year warranty.

550W G2 review.




Performance (40% of the final score) - you probably already know what I'm going to say here. Voltage regulation was excellent, averaging 0.9% in the hot box. No points deducted. Efficiency was a pass for Gold both times. No deduction. Ripple control was amazing, and probably the best I've ever seen, so definitely no deduction there. I saw no issues with anything else, so this unit gets a 10 here.

Functionality (20% of the final score) - this unit gets everything right. Even the CPU cable, which I thought was terrible on the 650W, is done right here today. Semi fanless mode works well, the manual is decent, we got lots of connectors to power anything a 550W unit should power, and the box came with more goodies than I tend to expect with such a small unit. 10.

Value (20% of the final score) - you can get one of these for $84.99 at Newegg right now. That's a fair bit for a unit this size these days, but as always EVGA is right at the bottom of the cost pile when it comes to 80 Plus Gold and full modularity. The nearest competition is their own 550W GS unit at one dollar more money. This is nuts. How are you making any money on these, EVGA? 10.

Build Quality (20% of the final score) - oh, snap... EVGA just got another perfect total score. There's nothing wrong with this unit. Nothing. 10.

Asus Z170-K Motherboard Click Here < Thats the motherboard i'm taking about
Intel i5 6600K Click Here
MSI Gtx 960 4GB Click Here
16GB Kingston DDR4 Click Here
Exdisplay Neptune Gaming Click Here
Seagate Barracuda 3TB Click Here

There are other parts but the total wattage does not go above 450W (-/+ 30W). Im also concerned about the maximum of 85% efficiency on the PSU...
