Cooler Master’s PSU Haswell Ready

There has been a lot of talk about PSU compatibility for Intel’s upcoming 4th Generation Core Processors (code named Haswell). We have observed a large amount of misinformation being spread. We would like to clarify the situation to calm and reassure our customers and partners that they will be able to upgrade safely. A full list of Cooler Master power supplies is listed here.

This might cause some older power supplies to shut the system off when the CPU enters idle mode, or prevent the system from waking up out of sleep mode. To our knowledge all mainboard vendors will disable this advanced power saving mode by default, and no customer upgrading to Haswell should experience any issues whatsoever. Should customers experience problems nevertheless, or would like to enable the advanced power saving mode on older power supplies that might not s...
