BitFenix Fury Passes Intel Haswell Testing

The release of the Fury PSU Series has made serious waves in the hardware community with impressive power specifications and cables featuring all Alchemy sleeving. Another great benefit is high efficiency and cost savings, especially when paired with Intel's Haswell-class processors and their low-power sleep states. To ensure full compatibility with the latest hardware, BitFenix has worked closely with Intel to make sure that Fury delivers according to spec. After recent testing from the Intel labs, the BitFenix Fury PSU Series passed with flying colors, reaffirming their full compatibility with Intel Haswell C6/C7 sleep states.

Intel Haswell C6/C7 is a low-power state that is meant to lower power usage when the system is in sleep mode. The issue arises when certain power supplies are unable to provide a minimum load of 0.05 amps on the 12V2 rail, which can lead to stability issues. However, Fury PSUs are fully compatible with these sleep states, as the Intel testing labs have confirmed. See below for the Haswell test for the Fury 750G:

The BitFenix Fury PSU Series is now listed on the PSU selector found on the Intel website:

Never used a Bitfenix PSU before nor have I seen one in the wild. Would love to see one in action or hear what people think of them as the cases made by Bitfenix are pretty top notch!

Uh... isn't this a bit late? I could've sworn that the whole "PSU being compatible with Haswell low-power sleep states" thing was a long time ago (namely, around Haswell launch). Since PSUs after the Haswell launch are likely made with the Haswell power thing in mind, this probably means BitFenix took their time to Haswell check their PSU.

On a somewhat related note, has anyone ran into a PSU that had trouble with Haswell's low-power sleep states?

Yes a few off brands I have seen have had troubles with the low power state. Apevia is one that comes to mind off the top of my head.
