What's this 4-pin power delivery you speak of? It's got one 8-pin power for CPU. Anything more is just overkill unless you're doing insane overclocking. One 8-pin connector can deliver 384 watts of power.
Sorry, I did mean the 8 pin. The difference between 8, and 12 is you get a more stable delivery for more stable overclocks. I may keep it I have 30 days to see how I feel about it. Don't really want to spend another $100 I may pick up a USB DAC or just throw in the SBZ I have. This setup would make a good upgrade for her in another 2 years when I bump again.
