Warning from PCPP

My build shows a warning at the bottom

The MSI MPG X570 GAMING EDGE WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard has an additional 4-pin ATX power connector but the Cougar GX-F 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply does not. This connector is used to supply additional 12V current to the motherboard. While the system will likely still run without it, higher current demands such as extreme overclocking or large video card current draws may require it.

But from what i've seen the PSU does have a 24 pin ATX power connector. I feel like I'm completely missing something and misreading the specs page. Help plz

There is an extra 4-pin CPU connector which isn't required unless you're trying to kill a CPU through overclocking.

im going to be overclocking hopefully to a stable 6ghz so I can essentially just ignore the warning?
