i5 compatible PSU???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm almost done with my build and had a question about PSU's. I ordered an i5 2500k processor for this build. I already have a new Rosewill 600w PSU (RP600V2-S-SL). When i was looking for parts, i noticed some PSU's said they are intel i3/5/7 compatible... mine doesn't say that. Is that essential or is it just a stupid sales tactic?

theyre just stupid sales tactics. any atx psu will do fine.

the only thing yuo may need to worry about is psu connections for your video cards.

You'd be so embarrassed when he plugs in his current PSU and it causes a rip in the fabric of space-time that destroys the universe. Except we'll all be dead, so it's not like it matters...

On-topic, as subliminally incorrect said, it is a meaningless marketing ploy. The newest generation sockets/motherboards have the same power requirements (PSU connectors) as previous ones, so just make sure to plug everything in, and you'll be good to go!

I have a sapphire 5830, which requires 2x 6 pin. My PSU has them both, so i'm covered. Thanks for the input... once again, guyladouche is johnny on the spot with a quick response to one of my n00b questions.
