Most Rosewill PSUs are crap from crap psu makers, their Green series and supposedly new Hive series are good.

the lightning series are also good on par with any antec,corsair,seasonic

what? did I tell the guy he had to buy Corsair or Antec? I was just telling obsidian that not every Rosewill psu is good.

Yeah, to clear some things up on Rosewill.

Lightning series, SF GG inside, on par with Seasonic X/Corsair AX(except maybe the Lightning 1000 which isn't as brilliant but easily as good as the HX1050).

Capstone series, same platform as above, on par with Seasonic X/Corsair AX but not modular.

Hive series, solid units, Sirtec HPC-B14C inside, great value(probably the best modular units available in NA price/performance wise).

80+ Green series, solid ATNG built units, again good value.

Bronze series, decent units, Sirtec made.

^that's more than half of what they have on sale and they range from decent to excellent.. most of them being better than what Corsair has on offer in each respective segment.

80+ Green > CX
Hive > GS
Capstone/Lightning > TXv2/TXM
Capstone/Lightning ~ AX/HX

You're wrong. Where are you getting the idea that a SF Golden Green 800w is better than a XFX 850 XXX?

I know nothing of Corsair's marketing. What I know is that their PSUs are known for reliability. And why do you keep saying "isn't known" by me? I never said, "I don't know Rosewill as a quality brand." I've said Rosewill isn't known for their quality PSUs. Big difference. I'm going by people who have a lot of experience building computers for 15+ years.

Never said Rosewill PSUs are all crap. Just that overall they're not top quality. A few of their newer lines of PSUs are good. Great, awesome for them. I never argued against that.

Except most Enermax units are grossly overpriced for what they are. There's usually better for cheaper.

If you ignore most of their older units, then I'd say "overall" they're top quality now.
