Question Question Regarding Motherboard ATX Power connector

Apr 4, 2020
0 “The Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Corsair RMx (2018) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it.” Should I be worried about it? Other than that, what should I change? my budgets around 1600 with the monitor.
