Since when does OCZ or Corsair make power supplies? They re brand them and use several manufacturers that actually make them, so quality varies from model to model.

You've only complained about Rosewill Green units failing. Do you have any proof of Rosewills other modern PSU's sucking?

Right now, you're just talking out of your behind.

They're not "the" best, but are worlds better than that junk Thermaltake TR2...
Are you dogging Seasonic? Their PSUs have been at the upper end of quality for a long time. That why manufacturers such as Corsair and PCP &C used them.

how can you bash anything because its image is not perfect ?

its like bashing GM because not every car the make looks like the zr1 yeah some of their cars are crap and have been for ages but just because they make crap cars you gonna bash the blood outta them for everything they make

You might not want to talk about cars, especially GM. I'm a certified mechanic and have been working on cars longer than some members have been alive. I can, in good conscience, say that 90% of their vehicles and build quality is crap. Of all the vehicles I have worked on, GMs regularly blow engines, have all sorts of electrical problems and so on. This is a result of poor engineering.

If you want, I could give you some names of OCZ/Rosewill units that are better choices than similarly priced Corsair/Seasonic stuff.
I considered OCZ products in the past and most reviews that I had read about them werent good. Only good one I recall reading was for a ModX. The SxS of the same wattage was a poor performer. You cannot group all in the same series. A
500w unit may be made by a different manufacturer than a 700w.

People forget budget builds can't afford to use high end PSUs if they could they wouldn't be budget builds........ Similar priced PSU by Antec and the rest might only have half as much wattage and people have bought into the whole "you need 1200w of power for high end systems" when most sli/CF rigs wont go past 650w.

We're not saying Rosewill makes fantastic PSUs but they make decent units and if you look at amps instead of watts you can get a better idea of what PSUs are better than others and which inflated the wattage with massive useless 5v and 3v rails. And for the system the TC has he probably doesn't even pull 400w, now should he have gone for a nice Seasonic 620? maybe but then he might've spent a bit more and again would've gone OVER his budget.


Now I'm a firm believer that if you cut cost you do it else where AND NOT on the PSU but everyone's budget is different and people live and learn. Rosewill's are getting better and they're not the garbage they used to be. I would recommend them for budget builds if you get a good price.

Also getting the best bang out of your dollar is important, and some PSUs aren't always what they claim to be;http://www.hardocp.com/article/2011/...en_buying_psu/

they sure as hell don't vary to the realm of Rosewill. it's always funny to see "corsiar uses OEM's too" as if that makes them any less superior to crapper master or rosewill units.

I already pointed out that there are a select few units in some of the ranges (i.e Stealthxstream) that have problems, as the OEM's are mixed.

*Most* tend to be atleast be decent, though. There's no use in avoiding a brand because they have a few bad apples. As long as you pick one of the good ones, and they have decent warranty/support then I don't see the problem.

Sure they do. Rosewill use ATNG, Superflower, Solytech, and Sirtec. I could be missing one or two.

uh...every single corsair and antec unit between $45 and $70 can power any "budget" build you could put together. if you can't afford a corsair CX you cant afford to play videogames on your pc. really, are all these rosewills under $45 for decent powered units? unless they are, no reason to speak of them.

Read any Jonny Guru review where he tests a cheap PSU and watch the capacitors fly --literally.

If I were you I'd add the extra few bucks and get the Corsair.

I'm surprised someone with so much rep knows so little about rosewill PSUs and is vehemently dissing them without any real backing

The RG series is recommended by OCN constantly and is a great PSU line.

the rosewill HIVE series is a rebrand of the OCZ VS PSU line which was reviewed very favorably by johnnyguru. the rosewill lightning series was reviewed well.

You should really...you know...do some research before trying to defend such a silly opinion.

OCZ ZS 550 [rosewill hive 550] @ johnny guru: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...Story&reid=248

OCZ ZS 650 [hive 650] @ hardwaresecrets: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/artic...ly-Review/1361

what do you know?! good reviews. could have never guessed that one without..idk..googling it in 6 seconds.

No, they aren't. Period.

currently running the 430w version of this in a budget build for my gf, it's powering a gtx 460. and at the time of purchase, it was 20 dollars cheaper than the corsair cx 430
