I am planning on getting the Asus GTX 1080 ti Strix for my build but the specifications list the connectors being a 10+2 power phase (Don't know if I am wording it in the correct way) but I don't know what that means. The EVGA Supernova 750W G3 shows many ports from MOBO, CPU, SATA, VGA, AND PERIF (Peripheral I assume). Although I know where the mother board is connected, I am confused about some things so I'll split it into 3 different questions:
Would my 10+2 power phase Strix be compatible with said the Power Supply?
What port does my hard drive get connected to? Sata or VGA? Same for the Graphics Card
What is the CPU, VGA, SATA, and PERIF ports for? They all seem to be the same looking port. Also why a CPU port? I thought the power needed for the CPU would be given from by the MOBO which got its power from its dedicated port.
Thank you for reading this.
