Yea the 8 pin ATX needs power for the motherboard to boot.

Yea it's not posting though... forgot to mention that in my previous post lol.

If you don't have the 8 pin ATX power on your PSU then you will need a new one that has this connector.

Most PSU's have it now.

No worries.

Just make sure you get that 8 pin connector as well as the 20+4 pin on the new PSU.

Haha, after all that, that is all the problem will be.
Go Remeniz

I remember on my first build I didn't plug it in either and when nothing happened, I just slumped down and went "...oh"
