    No, sorry what I mean is if my old power supply (Corsair 750W CXM) is an ATX 24 pin and my new motherboard says EATX 24 pin would it work or do I need a new power supply with an EATX 24 pin connector?
    Yes, that power supply should work on an EATX motherboard as Dude noted. And if this is the power supply you're talking about, yeah, you're good.

    BTW, where'd you get EATX from, cause reviewing that board (scroll down to form factor) shows it to be a standard ATX board.

    Under the Internal I/O Ports look for 1 x 24-pin EATX Power connector(s)

    Yeah, they're just calling it an EATX 24-pin connector due to the fact the old standard was 20 pins, but now with the 4 extra pins some are calling it an EATX 24-pin now. That's my guess. I do know back in the day (late 90's early 2000's) motherboards only needed a 20-pin connector. I know because I had a few of those boards. When the new standard came out, people needed to upgrade their power supplies due to the extra 4 pins needed for the 24-pin boards we know today. This image illustrates somewhat what I'm talking about...

    There are 20 pins on the main block and then the extra 4 needed for a 24-pin connector. Hope that clarifies.

    I know what you guys are going to say, its your old PSU, i'm waiting for the 850 to come this month, it's on pre-order Amazon got none in stock.

    PS - I've read water cooling you have to flush the fluid from the tanks from time to time is this true even with the CPU cooler (Corsair Hydro H100i), or wont that need flushing? My first time I've used liquid cooling and I have to say I'm impressed the temps are lower on my CPU.

    That's what I like to see a nice clean build. Congrats.

    And If the power supply is serving it's purpose, there's no need to run out and replace it. The heck to what we think, we aren't paying the bill

    AIO (All In One) which is what that Corsair is considered are self contained so you can't do any maintenance to them. If anything happens it'll need to be replaced. That said, I myself put mine on a time change schedule which has me replacing them every 3-4 years. Earlier if there's an issue. That's me.

    Where do you see a Radeon VII

    Anyway I have one and like it and it competes very well against NVidia's stock 1080's, not far behind their stock 2080's. However it is a power hungry card, and can get very hot and LOUD!!! (2 huge negatives of this card).

    On your system one under graphics card. Oh, then I wonít get one. This 580 card of mine is good, but Iíll upgrade it soon I think as Iíve had it almost a year.

    I am a fan of Corsair power supplies. I only use Corsair or SeaSonic.

    As far as the fact that it's an older 750, is no issue. Unless you need this 750 in another box, I would cancel the pre-order on the 850 and just stick with the 750. Why spend money that you don't need to?
