PSU & CPU generations
Are newer PSU's OK to use on older CPU's? - I read adverts such as Haswell ready or Kaby Lake ready and figure it's got something to do with the power states etc.....but if Ii buy a newish PSU are they OK to use with Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge or the E versions or Xeon versions E3 or E5?
I figure they should be but not sure 100% - And how about if a PSU was bought in 2,3 years time would they still be good for the same old CPU's? - Thanks
Of course it would be OK. Same goes for older PSUs for newer CPUs. For instance, I have an old TX750V2 since 2011 and it still works great in my system, keeping my voltages perfectly stable and never had any issues with it.
Some much older PSUs are not capable of delivering low enough power for the new C-states introduced in Haswell and beyond, those PSUs however will be of very poor quality anyway.
I'd say anything after 2013/14 should be perfectly fine for Haswell and beyond - and you wouldn't exactly be buying a 5+ year old PSU now-a-days anyway. So I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.
Obviously newer PSUs won't have any issues powering older CPUs without the extra C-states as well.
