Hello there everyone! I hope y'all having a wonderful day!
I'm picking up a i7 4770k processor, and i was wondering the psu has to be Haswell Ready in order for it to work, or can i just grab any power supply? If so, do you have any suggestions on wich one?
Thanks in advance have a great day.
Haswell has some features, such as a low-power-state. If you get a Haswell-ready PSU, then it'll support this feature. If you don't have a Haswell-ready PSU, you'll have to disable the option in the BIOS. I hope someone else can go in with a in depth explanation about the C-states or whatever.
Any power supply will work with Haswell, but not all are compatible with the low power sleeper states.
from what I've here I think you can type powercfg -h off in command prompt and it might disable the low power states (havnt tried it yet)
