PSU compatability with Haswell concern

Hello all, I just recently purchased http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-182-067&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=2&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=1#scrollFullInfo

For my first gaming rig. I was wondering if this psu will be able to power the i5 4670k and a gtx 770 lightning from msi on the Msi z87 g45 mobo. Are these parts compatible? Thanks in advance!

  1. Everything should work fine. However, this probably was not a great purchase, as it got relatively terrible reviews... Seemingly behaves as a PSU with 150W less than it should...
  2. ^ agreed with @dannyboy2233. That was not a good purchase.
  3. It's always good to read the reviews before buying something. To be honest, I would see about asking Newegg and returning it, as it's really unsafe to have a PSU which is likely to fry your parts. Just go with a good, 650W PSU (like the Seasonic M12II) which will behave similar to the Rosewill, except without blowing up. :)

    Thanks for the speedy answer. I was hasty in my purchase because I saw that it had 4 eggs yet some people had terrible experiences. I guess I'll have to purchase a new one in the near future. Is it even worth assembling the comp with that psu or should I just opt for a new one?
  5. I would attempt a RMA.

    If it was anything but a PSU, I'd say go for it. However, it's most definitely not worth the $300+ risk of frying your MoBo , etc. Just wait until you can get your hands on a good PSU. Also, if you put it in now, you will have to re-route your cables when you get a new PSU.

    But can't you only RMA things if they're broken or damaged...?
  8. @dannyboy2233: as long as it is within the return period for electronics, it should be fine. RMA doesn't say that it must be damaged.
  9. That PSU would definitely not be able to handle Haswell's C6/C7 sleep states.

    Rosewill has already discontinued that model.

    It must have been some clearance sale.
