Are Rosewill power supplies REALLY that terrible? - Page 9  

post #81 of 130
@Death_Jester I recommend going to the JonnyGuru forums (in the PSU section) and asking there. There's a lot of people in this thread that are talking out of their behinds, and the few amount of accurate posts are getting lost in all of it.

Unfortunately, most people in this section only listen to Phaedrus and Tator Tot.

To answer your question, though, 620w is more than enough for your sig rig. You could easily get by on a 400-450w. I'd just stick with the HIVE, as it's a solid unit for the price.

Edit: If you are SLIing, 600w is still enough.

@FLCL That's a nice unit, I wish it was modular though. Would 620W be enough?
yes the 620 is enough for sli 460's

More than enough, as long as you don't intend on swapping those 460's you want for 480s/580s

Tator and Phaedrus recommend Rosewill Hive, Lightning and Green PSU's. Anyone that disagrees should go battle with those guys and prove you are more knowledgeable about Rosewill PSU's.
post #85 of 130
if you simply want the cheapest modular 600+w psu you'll get what you pay for. the cheapest one in every way.

This! There is Tons of misinformation here. The older rosewill units are not that great. The Hive, green, and lightning lines are very good and recommended by many psu gurus.

Well my signature system isn't fully complete, which is why I was asking about the buying forums. I thought the FAQ I read said you could post in the buying forums without rep but it's not letting me.

Anyway, I want to add a second 460 and SSD like I said, a card reader, dvd-rw, two more sticks of RAM, another 120mm fan, possibly some lights, and possibly a liquid cooling system since I would like to play with overclocking this time around.

Still no issues with the lower wattage PSUs?

You get what you pay for 95% of time and this I agree with, but that doesn't exclude specials and deals from being steals.

I got this for 75 bucks shipped two weeks ago http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371049

and this for 65 bucks about two years ago http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371021

Those are just huge misconceptions about how much power people really need. You'll be fine with the setup you have and what you will put in with the 650 FLCL or I posted. I would always say for PSUs buy more than you need but that's just a personal opinion.

what more is there to do?
His claiming that all Rosewill PSUs are junk is silly. It still doesnt change THE FACT that 100% of the Rosewills HE used failed. Regardless of what reviews say, personal experience will trump all for most people.

As for OCZ thats why edited my previous post. They do, in fact, make some decent PSUs however their higher quality units are more expensive than their mainstream ones negating any benefit.

Well the difference here is that this most likely wouldnt happen. No use going into hypothetical scenarios.

However I wi say that most early psu failures are due to damage during shipping.

I do think FLCL is basing his opinion on old information and previous info, aslo some of his post could be seen as attacks by some.

80 plus 4/5 eggs http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...US%20Certified

80 Bronze 4/5-5/5 excluding the terrible 700w http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ZE%20Certified

80 Gold 4/5-5/5 eggs http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...LD%20Certified

Now that doesn't mean all Rosewills are good but they are buying from a better OEM, clearly,and they are selling better units. IF anyone can't see that rosewill is improving he/she is clearly delusional and should leave this thread.
Trusting newegg reviews are we?
You have to take most of them with a grain of salt unfortunately.

Its not blind hate, for me at least. More often than not budget psus, regardless of whom they're made by don't meet the qualities that I am looking for. Only reason I would dissuade someone from buying them.

Well that's part of the problem, I just really have no idea how much power I need. I tried using on of the calculators but it seemed like it didn't really have a space for everything I intended to have. Anyway, is there any reason to not use the PCIe adapters that came with the video card if I get a lower wattage PSU that only has two PCIe cables?
