I am trying to build an ITX pc, I have ASUS ROG STRIX B660-I, and a Cooler Master NR200P Max case with a power pre-installed ( V850 SFX GOLD 850 Watt ), however, the power/reset switch pin does not look like the one that could match the 8-pin power connector shown on the motherboard, but when I check online, this motherboard is compatible with this case.
This is my first time building a PC, and I am stuck here with the power connector and could not move on, need some help from expert Redditors.

Below is the connector pic

That is the CPU 8pin power. Cable sure be labels CPU or EPS on the power supply.

The power/reset switch from the case is not a power connector. It goes elsewhere - read the manual - along with things like the audio and HDD light. Power/reset basically just complete circuits so that buttons on the case can power/reset the PC.

What goes there is the 4+4 pin CPU/EPS power cable from the power supply.
The HDD light and power switch button pin are not in place with audio, and the instruction on the manual is not very clear. But I now have found its place, thank you!
