PSU has 4th gen. Intel support, but I'm getting an i5-6500 processor!

I'm panicking a bit. Just made an order for this system: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/glslfan/saved/Qxmbt6, but when I was looking at the B&H info page for the Corsair RM650 PSU, I noticed it says this: "Supports 4th Gen. Intel Core Processors" The i5-6500 is 6th gen... is this something I should be worried about?

Any PSU that is haswell compatible is Skylake compatible.

BUT, it doesn;t matter you can use ANY PSU, you simply have to disable a sleep state in the BIOS.

Alright, thanks. So I won't need to disable the sleep state, then? This is my first build, so I'm probably overthinking everything :P

WTF?! Why is that a selling point xD Omg thats so dumb. 4th gen cpus use the same type of electricity as every other computer components.

It's about sleep states introduced with Haswell. Not about whether or not it works with Haswell processors.
