You're comparing apples and oranges. Seasonic is a manufacturer that sells its own branded PSUs and also does OEM work for other companies; Rosewill is merely a marketer of relabeled PSUs.

The trick is that for Rosewill (and any other company that doesn't actually manufacture their own units) you have to investigate which company was the OEM for any given line of products (e.g. Rosewill's Capstone, Hive, Fortess, etc.) and how good their build quality is. Even with Seasonic, the build quality of their units varies by line between merely "very good" (S12II / M12II) to "excellent" (X-Series).

For example, I'd much rather have a Rosewill Capstone, which is an excellent model manufactured by Super Flower instead of a Seasonic S12II model of the same wattage.

In short, it's not about the name on the outside, it's the components on the inside that matter.

Rosewill is nothing more than Newegg's house brand, and for PSU they re-label some of the best units out of China. It's no different than Antec, Corsair, PCP&C, Enermax, etc. They all do the same thing. Seasonic is itself a westernized brand name of a Chinese PSU maker, that in turn produces PSU for other brands.

That, and there are in-depth reviews of those Newegg PSUs that prove they're decent units.

Get your head out of the sand. LOL.

If is very possible for some Rosewill models to be better the some Seasonics and some Antecs to be better then Rosewill and some Seasonics to be better then Antecs and so on an so fort. There is overlap and lots of it not to even mention all the other brands that are around.

I have bad news for all who helped me. The PSU that I was given was DOA. It would boot up my system and then crash 10-75 min in. I am setting up an advanced RMA and going to hope that Rosewill is not the bad brand that a few of you have stated! It arrives on Friday.

Every brand has a broken unit here and there happens to all of them does not mean the brand is crap just you that has been unlucky

I am perplexed atm. I used my contacts with the company I work for and contacted the lead product expert at Rosewill. He emailed me the following.
Quote:
The most power hungry component in your system are your 2 video cards.
They each require 30A of power from the 12V of your power supply to run efficiently and since you have 2, that adds up to 60A needed.

http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=04G-P4-2673-KR


Unfortunately 750W will not be sufficient to run your system stably.
750W typically put out on average a total of 62A from the 12V which does not leave much breathing room for your power supply and because you have the additional components and with the addition of the overclocked CPU processor and possibly future component add-ons, it is recommended that you have at least a 1000W power supply for your system.

Please do have a look at our 1000W model of power supplies.

Lightning 1000 - +12V@83A
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182239

Tachyon 1000 +12V@83A
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182274

I hope my explanation is understandable and clear.

Can you shed some light on why he thinks I need a 1000w PSU and why everyone recommended me a 750w?

Guy at Rosewill doesn't have a clue. Easy enough explanation.

A gtx670 doesn't use 360w( AKA 12v x 30amps = 360w ) .

Two will though.

Here is my GTX 690 3dmark11 score with one GTX 690 and a 3970x done on my AX650 psu:



My computer should of shut down during this bench with all the high clocks and voltage if the psu wasn't enough, but I know my psu is more than enough. A GTX 690 is two GTX 680 chips on one pcb just in case you didn't know.

A computer Tech at Memoryexpress told me that a GTX 690 uses 650w by itself and I told him no, it's about 300w. He said look at the box, Nvidia said the card uses 650w. I told him that's the recommended wattage for a GTX 690 system. He told me no again and I said ok fine.


No sense arguing with know it alls.

That's what I kind of figured you all were going to come back with. That's why I left out his name and email address. He would probably be crucified should the info he gave was bad and leaked out. I am in the same field, obviously, but I don't know everything about computers. But seeing as how Rosewill is primarily a fan, psu, accessories and with maybe so few parts, he should know something more and especially if he regards himself as the product expert.
