Well it's the ATX12V1 connector i'm "worried" about, which from the online manual:
"ATX12V1: ATX 12V 8-Pin Power Connector
This connector supplies power to CPU. The system will not start without connecting power to
this one."

It's the same as my current 4-pin (P4) cpu connection.

There is ATX4P1 on the board as well which is a standard molex connection:
"ATX4P1: Auxiliary 12V Power Connector
This connector provides an auxiliary power source for devices added on PCI Express slots."

Should i just connect the PSU's P4 to pin 1 on the ATX12V1 (EPS 8-pin 12V i presume)?
