Haswell PSU Compatibility - Is your PSU compatible?

The intel 4th generation CPU - haswell are not compatible with all psu's out there.
Haswell has a function which makes them consume almost no power and so called "0 Load" when Idle.
But not all PSU's support this. I don't know details but what I know is if you're running it on a incompatible psu, then instead of going to "0 load" state, the PSU will just shut off turning your computer off and will require you to turn it on again. All psu brands have released the list of their psu's which are compatible with the Haswell.

1. Seasonic
These are the PSU's seasonic announced to be compatible with Haswell:
    X Series

    650 W
    750 W
    850 W
    1050 W
    1250 W

    Platinum
    660 W
    760 W
    860 W
    1000 W
    1200 W

    Platinum Fanless
    400 W
    460 W
    520 W

    M12II
    650 W
    750 W
    850 W

    G Series
    360 W
    450 W
    550 W
    650 W

I have a MII - 650w so it is compatible.
The following Seasonic psu's are not compatible with haswell:
M12II: 520 W, 620 W
S12II: All
M12D: All
SS: All

2. Corsair
Check > Corsair Website < for list with details.

3. OCZ
Check > OCZ Website < for list and details.

These 3 brands are the only one I looked into. Will update if I come across something new.

Nice heads up, I'm good w/ the Corsair TX850, although, I don't think I'm even getting Haswell.

Haswell isn't much different from Ivy. I'll wait for Skylake coz along with it the time will come for DDR4 ram and mobos too.
They will be ready for sale somewhere during the same months - June, July of next year.
