Default Dual EPS12V Power Supplies

Hey guys. I was shopping around for a power supply for my new server, and I thought I found one until I realised that my motherboard actually requires 2 EPS connections to function. It's a dual-socket board, so I guess that makes sense. I know that Corsair's HX850 can support 2 EPS, and thus by extension the HX750 since they use the same cabling (I think I still have an extra EPS cable from my Corsair shipment around here somewhere), but I'm willing to entertain other possibilities.

Does anyone know of a solid power supply with 2x EPS12V connectors, besides Corsair's modular line? This is for a server, so the only PCIe requirements are 1x 6-pin for the HD4850. I doubt anything more powerful will ever be going in the box... unless I decide to start folding, but that'll be a whole other investment

Brilliant! The Seasonic M12II 620W looks just like what I need. Though that X650 is awfully sexy too... Thanks a bunch!

EDIT: Wow, the Seasonic X650 is much sexier than I thought. I think I'm sold!

I used a PCP&C Silencer 910W on the same board you have. Great PSU, ran cool as a cucumber. It'll be up for sale sometime this week.

Corsair's HX 850 only has one 8 pin EPS Connector. But yeah Seasonic would be an excellent choice.

The XFX 850 watts Black edition (basically a copy of a Seasonic M12D 850) has 2 EPS. One is 8 pins and the other is 4+4. It also have 4 X 6+2 pins PCI-E.

Got that puppy ordered! PMed for $150.

It only comes with one out of the box, but it'll work with up to two EPS connections if you have the cabling. Corsair will send you a shipment of cables free of charge too, if you ask
