An inquiry about my PSU

Hi!!! I recently bought this PSU from Newegg and i'm wondering if this could run my new i7-920 platform? Since I noticed that most Corsair PSUs and some Silverstone and Thermaltake ones were listed as "i7 compatible". Now i'm wondering if this PSU I bought (btw, it works great for my old PC with no frills, etc.) can run an i7, and am I being misleaded by Newegg/Corsair or such? Thanks.

I did my own research on "i7 Certified" PSUs and I found no exact distinction among "i7 Certified PSUs" and my PSU. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just check your board for a 4 pin or 8 pin 12v port and be sure your power supply has the connector you need. Same for your video card(s).

Did you take time to read some of the reviews on Newegg before ordering it? Sort by lowest rating and see if any bad review could apply to your configuration.

There is no difference in i7 certified or not. Just means that they have been tested ok by the manufacturer.

Although HEC is a terrible PSU maker it should be fine.
