    Here's a list of "certified" Seasonic & Corsair models so far : Sea Sonic and Corsair Power Supplies Certified for Haswell

    Funny that my 2 year-old 460w Seasonic is not on the list, but my 6 year-old HX520 might make the cut
    Well, it's not like I will upgrade to Haswell anyways...

    I just replaced the original/dying ADDA fan on my Corsair HX620 with a Scythe Gentle Typhoon.
