Hello. I will buy an Asus Prime B450m-a/csm motherboard which has 8 pin CPU power connector and I have a Ryzen 5 2400g, also I have a Gigabyte B700H Power Supply 700W which has 4+4 CPU power connector. 


I bought a 700W PSU because further upgrades like high-end graphics card.


So my question is:


Do I need to connect 4+4 CPU connector to give the necessary power to my Ryzen 5 2400g?



It is enough if I only connect  4 pin CPU from my pSU instead of 8 pin?


The manual says>

Compatible with Intel standard ATX 12V V 2.31

COmpatible with tha EPS 12V V2.93


How much power does Ryzen 5 2400g require?        I know it gives 65W TDP but I do not know how does it work on PSU.


Thanks in advance.
