Can this wire extend my psu?

So my PSU CPU power wire isnt long enough to connect to my CPU power port on my MOBO, it supports ATXV12 and ESPV12. Near the CPU power port on my MOBO it says ATX_12V_2X4. I searched online and I saw that ATX is 4 pin and ESP is 8 pin but I have ATX with 8 pin so i got confused and just decided to ask here. Is this wire extension cable compatible.

Wire extension : http://amzn.to/1wlnZHx (Link was like three line so i made it sort).

MOBO : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-gah97gaming3

PSU : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/ocz-power-supply-ocz550fty

Thanks for any help.

P.S. sorry if this is in the wrong section, i didnt know if it would be under PSU or CPU but since its about power i picked PSU.

As said the EPS connector is often split into 4x2 connectors for different mobo's which will work fine have a look at this PC power supply cables and connectors which may help.

Thank you. But how come on my MOBO it says ATX when its 8 pin. Is it just two 4 pin connectors since it says ATX_12V_2x4?

Atx is the power specifications it requires. EPS is fully compatible with atx standards, but goes a little bit stricter on bits of it. Short Story is that EPS is backwards compatible with 8pin atx.
