Suitable picoPSU for AsRock H81M-ITX? (Missing 4-pin CPU connector...)

Hello all,

I have decided on all parts for my new passively-cooled HTPC (ref my other post under General Hardware thread for more details) with the exception of the PSU. I am just finalizing this now.

I used this article from jonnyGURU and from there, decided on these parts for the PSU:
1. pico-PSU-120WI-25V
2. FSP 120W 19V power brick (FSP120-AAB)

As mentioned in the title, the selected motherboard is an ASRock H81M-ITX.

Only problem is, the pico-PSU does not have a 4-pin CPU connector, as you can see on this picture. Does that mean I am screwed or is there something I am missing? I would love to go with this proven solution, but it just does not make any sense that a power connector on the mobo would end up being unused.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

All right folks, I kept searching after I posted and found the answer here. It is said that "if your board has a 4-pin 12V P4 power connector, you will need to use a Molex to 12V P4 Power Cable, or a different picoPSU." Problem solved. That was easy!

Thank you for your suggestion truckerCLOCK and what a coincidence as I am currently shopping for parts!

Just wanted to close the loop on this one by saying that it worked perfectly.
