Default Dual 12v power supply and motherboard

On newegg, this powersupply says its dual 12v- but i'm not so sure it is:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817148005

Another question- will this motherboard acept either 20 pin or 24 pin power supplies, from looking at this picture?

any help would be great- thanks

Look closely, it has a 20-pin and 4-pin connector on the same bridge (usually the 4-pin is near the CPU, to which it provides the extar power).

Ok, thank you.- I probably would have figured it out if there was a pdf motherboard manual for this motherboard.

thanks

That's cool, I've never seen the extra 4pin so close to the main connector like that...on a lot of DFI boards it's above it or something like that, but this is the first I've seen it right in line with it
