Is PSU ErP/EuP compatible?

Hello,
Im ordering a couple new parts, and have a motherboard on the way with some customer reviews saying that it needs an "ErP/EuP Ready" (necessary,) PSU. I have no clue how to go about checking if my PSU is that or not, and they're not making it easy.

Here's my PSU:

And here's the motherboard I ordered:

Should I cancel the motherboard order and look for one without the ErP/EuP requirement? Or am I good?

  1. ErP/EuP is the standard set by the European Union for power consumption of a system in it's "off" state. The PSU must consume less than 1 watt at this stage.
    You only have to have a compliant PSU if you want to meet the European standards of efficiency. Your motherboard will operate fine without ErP/EuP compliant PSU.

    According to these reviews, the motherboard will just act DoA if your power supply doesn't meet ErP/EuP
