I bought this motherboard GIGABYTE X399 Designare EX AMD Ryzen Threadripper TR4 ATX DDR4 Motherboard. I noticed there is are 2 ATX connections on the board at upper left of the board. One is a 4 pin ATX 12V_2 and the other is the 8 pin ATX 12V_1. Do both of these need to be supplied power, or just the 8 pin connector.

finally found something on youtube about the ATX 1 & 2 power connections. At the 1 hour 10 minute spot on the video is where he connects the power cables.

Hello championroma

I am the MSZ Forum Moderator.
You have posted two different forum messages within 7 minutes of each other.

I have moved your first message into a new forum thread here:
www.moviestudiozen.com/forum/general-computer-hardware/3113-ryzen-2700x-processor-and-an-msi-b450m-gaming-plus-motherboard#15559

In your first message, you ask about a Ryzen 2700x processor and an MSI B450m gaming plus motherboard.
Then in your 2nd message (7 minutes later), you have said you bought a GIGABYTE X399 Designare EX AMD Ryzen Threadripper TR4 ATX DDR4 Motherboard.

I will assume we can all ignore your first message.

Is it safe to assume this ?

Have you also bought an AMD Threadripper CPU to go with the GIGABYTE X399 Motherboard ?

Many higher powered CPUs have 2x sets of power inputs.
The second one is normally only used if you plan to do any overclocking.

I would recommend you post questions about specific motherboards on the Linus Tech Tips Forum.
This would be a much better place to ask for help on these topics.

I recently bought an AMD Ryzen 7 5700G with a Gigabyte B550 DS3H MoBo for under £400, I think the CPU was 279 and the mobo 69. I went for the G as GPUs are stupid money and I needed integrated GFX at least as it was a new build. Ram For Ryzen 7 5800x The only downside is it can only address PCIe 3.0 instead of 4.0 and is rated for 3200MHz RAM - but its quick, low wattage, and the stock cooler it ships with keeps it cool under loads well enough.
