Post PSU compatibility?

I'm planning on getting a new PC for Christmas and I was confused by the one thing, I'm planning on getting a 600w power supply but the one I'm getting a corsair CX series has a single ATX connector, but looking at the mother I'm planning on getting, an Asus M5A99X, it doesn't say if it has an ATX connector, but it does say it has an EATX 24 pin connecter, I'm not too sure if that means it will work or not :/ but here's the links to the websites :P
Mobo: ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS M5A99X EVO

Power Supply: Builder Series

simple read the facts in manual it says so sec2 page3

most PSU's are 24 pins

if 20 pin it won't do

note corsair manual says 24pin on version 2
