Are Rosewill power supplies REALLY that terrible? - Page 4  

post #31 of 130
If you are kind of on the fence about it, I would maybe take a look at this PSU;

Thermaltake TR2 TRX-650M 650W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91 Modular Active PFC Power Supply

It's $84.99 but after the Mail-In Rebate, It's $59.99. Also Thermaltake is a good and trust brand to use and their line of PSU's hold up great.

You all talk about OCZ like theyre a good psu manufacturer. Theyre not. I wouldnt run an OCZ either.

Only brands I would run Seasonic, Corsair, Enermax, higher end Antec (their lower end ones suck). That and the older PC Power & Cooling which are essentially Seasonics.

If you want a good overclock a good PSU is a must.

Funny how you guys say a PSU with 60% efficiency is "decent" , thats utter garbage in my book. Its not without reason that the better PSUs are more expensive. You get what you pay for.

EDIT: Not all OCZ units are bad, but MOST are subpar.

Quite surprised that I can count OMG CORSAIR posts on only one hand.
when corsair stoops down or guys like coolermaster step back up those posts will go away. not likely to happen though, nothing wrong with giving credit where it's due for good ****, good service and honest labels.

I had the 700w green when I first started my i5-750 build. RMA'ed it twice since it always gave me problems and stopped working, ended up just returning it to newegg. It also took them 8 months to finally send me a check with my refund. -__-

Since then, I stopped buying from Newegg.

No.

The Rosewill Greens are decent, although the build quality isn't what I'd call fantastic, they still make for decent budget units.

The Rosewill LIGHTNING series are using the Superflower GoldenGreen platform, which solid. They're comparable, and are sometimes better than most of the higher end Corsair/Antec/Seasonic/XFX units. The same can be said for the Capstone series.

The HIVE series are based on the Sirtec B14C platform, which is also a solid performer. They're identical to the OCZ ZS line (you can see the 550w reviewed HERE)

And there's every reason to buy these units, because they're usually better than similarly priced Corsair/Seasonic units.

@Death Jester The Tech Support forum is full of fairly novice people that don't know what they're talking about. I once got banned there for questioning their PSU recommendations. If you need help with these sort of things, you're better off coming to an enthusiast forum, like here.

OMG but this guy here just told me that Rosewill green was good! look at the above post!!! OMG, my life must be a lie! those rosewill greens crapping out after a few days to weeks must have been an illusion!

I've used a 550w rosewill psu for the past three years in my backup rig. Never had any problems. In my experience though its always to get more psu than you need. You actually save money down the road so consider that when or if you purchase another psu. You might just want to save and get something beefy.

Like I said, Rosewill Green series is a solid product line, apart from the 700W version.

100% of the Green 630W i have come across have died, 4 not even under load. AFAIK, 630≠700.
