I have a Corsair CX 750M power supply and an MSI Z490 Gaming Edge WiFi motherboard. The motherboard has an 8 pin socket called CPU Power 1 and a second socket called CPU Power 2. My power supply only has the connector for the 8 pin socket number 1. Is that enough to run and potentialy overclock an Intel i7 10700k?

Thanks

as long as your not pushing the overclock very much it should be fine to just use the 1 8Pin but the CX 750M power supply is a bit of a lower Quality PSU by today's standards
