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.

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.

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.

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.
