EPS Power Conector. HELP

Here’s my build. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/4rXTD2

I got this message that said I needed an extra eps power connecter. Should I ignore it? If not, where can I find the right one for a good price?

Just as an aside, the 2700X has no iGPU, so you may want to add a video card to your build.

I’m adding a rx 580 to it. I just haven’t put it on there yet

You can ignore it

Buy a set of custom cables from cable mod, etc if your PSU has the connectors for an extra 8pin on CPU

Or upgrade the PSU wattage till you get the extra connector in the box

It looks like PC Part Picker really wants you to have a beefy PSU for that board.

This is about the least expensive PSU that I was able to find that PC Part Picker deems compatible (& also won't catch fire) https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/MvLhTB - that being said, 2700x is a 105W part. It can draw more than that on an overclock, but unless you're pushing pretty hard, 1 EPS connector should do.
