asrock b85m-itx and corsair cx500 power supply
hello, Im in the process of building my first gaming computer and i'm looking for a little assistance. I've purchased the motherboard and powersupply listed above, and they are suppose to be compatible. However the problem is when I try to test to see if I can get the power supply to turn on nothing happens. I think the problem is that the asrock b85m-itx instruction says it has an 8-pin ATX12V1 even though when you look at it there's only 4 pins. And the corsair cx500 power supply comes with 1 x 4+4 Pin EPS 12V.
Now per the instructions on the motherboard it says:
"This motherboard pro-
vides an 8-pin ATX 12V
power connector. To use a
4-pin ATX power supply,
please plug it along Pin 1
and Pin 5".
I have no idea what this means and I think this is where my problem lies. I'm checking to see if anyone has ever used these two componets in their builds?? Any help with greatly be appreicated, this is my first gaming pc build and what a pain I tell ya lol. And again both of these components per there websites are compatible but I haven't a clue to get them to work.
