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,

-Joe

Thanks for the fast reply, Nobus, but that is not a TFX design for a small desktop chassis.  :(

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: https://seasonic.com/product/tfx-350/ 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!
