TFX Power Supply

Hey Experts-

Anyone know a good 400W-500W TFX power supply that at least includes an 8-Pin CPU connector.  All I find have 4-pin and my Asus Prime Z270M-Plus won't start with only the 4-pin installed.  Plus I'm looking for a quality product.

Thanks for the fast reply, Nobus, but that is not a TFX design for a small desktop chassis.  :(
well - why don't you post the case you're using - or the pc model; you only posted the motherboard

Apologies, yes, good idea.  Chassis is an Antec VST2000-U3.
it seems there's no such beast around, the only TFX PSU's are 300 W
you can Always use an adapter, if the correct plug is not there - does it have molex power plugs?  then you can use this one :

Hard to find for sure.  I found this one: and it seems to be what I want, but the model number and specs don't match what's for sale anywhere online.  I'll probably contact Seasonic.  Until then, I'll get the adapter you suggest.  Thanks!
and are you sure you need 300 W ?
calculate the power you need here :

probbably  you need only 250 W
