My 650 watt Cooler Master isnt compatible with my ROG crosshair vii- needs 4 pin ATX connector?

I got a warning of its incompatibility.

The Asus ROG Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi) ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Cooler Master GX 650 W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard.

I dont have a clue as to how to filter this in the parts builder or shopping. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I need a PS that has the 4 pin power connector... is there a name or spec for this?

Ignore it (one EPS connector is good for up to 250W)

Unless you plan on overclocking the hell out of your CPU, 4 pin has enough power to cover your needs. Also, you don't need another PSU, just a splitter.

Thank you for that beta, I really appreciate it!
