Default Need help on power connector

i am trying to buy a new power supply for a new computer and as looked at the power connector for the ABIT KN8 Ultra motherboard i noticed there's another one called ATX4P1 for stability besides the main one and the 2 by 2 12v auxiliary power connector. there's a picture for the connector in the manuel and it looks like the molex for peripherals but that can't be it, it uses 12v. so could it be the second +12v from the dual rail capable power supply but shouldn't those dual rail connectors be something like 2 by 2 or 2 by 3 auxiliary connector instead of 4 pins in a row.

molex carries 12v. if it looks like a molex then it is most likely a molex. the lanparty sli-d has 4 power connector, the 24 pin, 4 pin, a floppy connector and a molex. the floppy and molex are optional for stability. so i'm guessing this board is similar.

the manuel for the motherboard saids the connector is a 12v auxiliary connector or ATX4P1,
