EVGA Releases List of Haswell Compatible PSUs

EVGA has revealed which of its power supplies are compatible with the new Intel Haswell processors, and the good news is that all of its current power supplies are compatible. EVGA has also cleverly pointed out that they are compatible with the C6 and C7 power states, meaning that the company didn't skimp and say that they are compatible, just not with the more efficient power states enabled. Well done EVGA!

The company also gave us a list of compatible power supplies, though it doesn't carry any surprises:

  • EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 1500 Classified (120-PG-1500-XR/VR)
  • EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 (120-G2-1300-XR)
  • EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G2 (120-G2-1000-XR)
  • EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750G Gold (120-PG-0750-GR)
  • EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750B Bronze (120-PB-0750-KR)
  • EVGA SuperNOVA NEX650G Gold (120-PG-0650-GR)

    Maybe a noob question (please don't judge me) but does it really matter what type of psu as long as it has enough watts?

    I am not sure what the fuss is about... just disable the new low-power states if your PSU isn't "Haswell Ready".

    Intel has made these new CPUs so efficient at idle they can actually drop below the minimum power level needed for some power supplies to function within spec.

    As the user above points out, You can just disable these new power saving states and use your current power supply if needed.
