Default 4+4 pin CPU connector vs 8 pin ATX connector

I recently bought a ECS P67H2-A2 motherboard and now I'm looking for a power supply. The motherboard says it needs a 24-pin ATX Power Supply connector and an ATX 12V power connector. On the power supplies they seem to offer a 20+4 motherboard connector and a 4+4 CPU connector. I'm just wondering if this 4+4 connector is what is supposed to go into the 8 pin connector or should I be looking for power supply with a specific 8pin ATX connector.


BTW here is a link to the motherboards specs.

THere is no difference in a 4+4 vs a 8pin connector.

The 4+4 is made so that way if your MB only had a 4pin CPU connector you didn't have the whole plug overhaning on your MB.

Either will work,
