EVGA introduced the 500B, a mainstream unit featuring a non-modular design, compact dimensions, Bronze efficiency, and a very nice price tag of only $50, right at the same time as their new SuperNOVA units. We will put it through its paces to find out how it performs.

the review shows it's not haswell compatible while the specs sheet has haswell compatible in it, are they misleading customers?

they told me that they have test it on haswell systems and worked properly. But it failed in the haswell tests I ran which were conducted according to Intel's methodology, which for the moment isn't public and also is very stressful and not so realistic.
Bottom-line I think they should remove the Haswell ready label (already told them so)
