- Um, odd question; the power supply (PSU) provides power to the processor.
- For the most part, No. Consider the following:
- The BIOS on your motherboard can install microcode that fixes errata in the processor (including things like the SpectreB vulnerability), so make sure you are running the latest available BIOS for your motherboard.
- There are Windows driver/software packages available from Intel that enumerate and support some of the features of the processor and all of the features of the chipset used on your motherboard. You can install and run Intel's Driver Update and Support Assistant (IDSA) facility, which will identify which packages you need and facilitate their download and installation.
Hope this helps,
