Will a Ryzen work with my GS800 PSU?

I have a Corsair GS800 PSU. I bought it 6 years ago and spent a lot of money on it intentionally for longevity and reliability.


Now I'd like to know if this PSU will work with a Ryzen 5 1600 CPU and compatible motherboard, specifically an Asus Prime B350-Plus


I've heard a few horror stories of Ryzen not working with certain PSUs, but there seems to be very little on the subject, so it's difficult to find out what specifications make a PSU compatible, or is it just a gamble, and no one really knows?


Someone said any high quality functioning ATX PSU from the last 10 years or so should work fine with it, as long as it has the relevant connectors (24 pin mobo and 8 pin ATX).


It doesn't seem quite so simple as that, however.


Someone please help? I've been agonising over this for hours now and I'm exhausted!
