Seasonic PSU for i5 4670k?

Hello,

I'm planning on building my first PC, the parts that I've bought so far are:

- i5 4670k
- Asus Z87 Pro
- GTX 660 Ti
- WD Blue 1TB

For the cooler, I'll go with a 212 Evo if I can still find one, and for RAM - 2x4GB at 1600MHz from Corsair probably. About the PSU though, I wanted to get a Seasonic S12II-620 but then I saw that it's not "Haswell ready". I read somewhere that I can still go for it if I can disable the C6/C7 states from the motherboard. I'm not well documented on that, but from the manual it seems that I can.

So should I go with the S12II-620 and try that disabling thing, or should I look for a similar but Haswell compatible PSU?

    Hi - Since you have a lot of flexibility in terms of power needed (a good modern 450w unit
    will run your sys), I suggest you look for a similar quality PSU as opposed to disabling
    the sleep state function in BIOS.

    Consider any of the many quality(450-650w) PSU's available from the 'known to be good quality'
    brands/models. If you post your location & budget I'll look for some recommendations.
  2. The seasonic u have seen is a great psu it can even handle sum sli card plus its not haswell ready its output is far better current output and is even ready for later generation than haswell

    $79.99

    Great deal and Haswell Ready
  4. I'm from Romania, prices here are way higher than on newegg for example. That Seasonic S12II at 620W is $65 on newegg, over here the cheapest that I could find (and without shipping costs) is around $105. Which is about what I wanted to spend on a PSU.

    So any suggestions are appreciated, I'll look some more for other models in the mean time.

    Edit: That 550W G Series one is about $116 over here, I guess I can get it if I don't find anything else.
  5. It's a sweet unit , and the PSU , you wan't to get a good one to protect your other components.

    Hi - If you can afford the G550, it is more than sufficient for your needs,go for it,
    you can also check for possible models from Antec (I believe some of their models are avail in Romania),
    it also is a good option for that system from keeping it balanced.
  7. Just go with the 620w
    It will hold good for ur crrnt configuration and future aswell

    Hi again - is 400 lei the most you can spend?
  9. Ok, so after talking a bit to toyftw through PMs since it didn't let me post in this thread, I've decided to go with the Seasonic G-550 after all. Thank you all for your help.
