The ATX motherboard I am looking at requires a PSU connector of size:


The PSU has connectors as such:

Main connector: 20+4 pin
CPU 12V connector: 8pin

I am assuming the 24 here equates to the 20+4 pin and the 8 here is the same as the 8pin CPU 12V?

The PSU: http://item.jd.com/818073.html (http://www.corsair.com/en/vs-seriestm-vs650-650-watt-power-supply)

The motherboard: http://item.jd.com/1135550.html (http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4995#ov)

Short answer:

Yes it will work.

Long answer:

The 24+8 is just as you say the 20+4 pin ATX connector and the 8 pin CPU connector (also known as an EPS connector).

For the sake of completeness, I will refer to this site and this guide, which both have lots of pictures, so you can confirm yourself that you are indeed on the right track.

Hopefully this will also provide a reference for people who find this question by searching.
