With Haswell Intel introduced a improved low power C6 sleep state that needs a PSU that can maintain a very low current draw with out shutting down. This is because the new sleep state draws so little power that it causes alot of PSUs to just shut off because it thinks the system has just been turned off so it in turn cuts the power completely.

Newer Haswell ready PSUs can detect that there is still a very low current draw and will therefore stay on and not cut off the power when it goes into sleep mode.

Edit: I totally read your question wrong. I take it your saying that v2.4 should infact support Haswell? Anyways for those who still want to know what Haswell support means that is the basic description.

ya. even before 2.4 there was haswell support. I think with 2.3 maybe.
edit: ya it's worth noting that while c6/c7 put parts of the cpu to sleep, they are actually idle states (for any users who don't use sleep and think it might not affect them). so having a haswell psu, like golfr32 said will benefit everyone using haswell or broadwell by lowering idle power consumption significantly (often like 5 watts). With a properly tailored system you can get to laptop-like power efficiency, and kiss the 100watt idle days good pay with a tenth of that in use Smilie

Man, if this deal had come around earlier! At this point in the game, my next PSU must be modular with Haswell support, as I already have a couple quality PSU's waiting for a home.. TU OP!! Gotta pass, though..

I am new to this, So thus this product supports Haswell ? & what is modular or silent means ?
Thus that impact overall CPU performance ?
