8 pin ATX = 4+4 plug that connects to the motherboard for CPU power (some motherboards have a 4 pin slot, others have an 8 pin slot).

The 8 pin plug is a 'detachable' plug that can be separated into two 4 pin plugs.

This is different to the 6+2 8 pin PCI-E plug used to connect your video cards etc...

Just out of curiosity, do you feel that having 11 fans is actually necessary? For example, does your heat rise substantially to dangerous levels with only 1/2 of those fans running?
Good point. I don't know. there are 3 240mm and 3 120mm with the case, two on the Noctua HSF, one on the psu. More than 11 in fact.

Runs well anyway

Here's a PSU a few of us have, I've got one for my new rig, read the specs for yourself.

It has 2 EPS/ATX12V 8-4 pin and 6 PCI-E 6+2 pin

does the PSU have a 8 pin cpu power connector?
Ah, I was thinking you meant the case or something.

Yes, my PSU has a 4 pin, 8 pin, and 2 6 pin connectors, as well as 6 power connectors and 6 SATA power connectors.

Should be enough for a full load, with 1 video card. Won't work for 2 though...

I also did a preliminary setup with some fabric last night. I took off the front cover and side fan and taped a thin fabric over them. Looks normal, but I have not yet had a chance to see how it does on dust, etc. I will try to make a better frame for it later.

Really Nice.

Corsair PSUs in general, are all top notch IMO though.

looking at computer cases
I'm looking at computer cases and cant seem to make up my mind. I'm mainly looking for good air flow rather than style or prettyness. It needs to be between $50-$80 and support Micro ATX motherboards. Outside usb ports would be nice on the front or top
