I have a Rosewill Capstone 650W PSU from 2011. At the time it was really good PSU that has been amazing all these years! Much better than any of the other named brands out there at the time. Here is what I know. Overtime the effectiveness of a PSU can degrade. Is what I know correct? If so, I would like to retire this one and save it for a backup/tester.
If that is true, I think I got my years out of it and I want to upgrade and get a new one. Even if it's not true or not enough time has passed, I still want to upgrade. Working with this PSU is semi difficult due to the stiffness of the cables.
There was a general idea back in the day that modular designs were not the best thing ever to have because they had more points to fail on and it added one more hop for electricity to pass through and potentially cause problems. Has this general idea changed?
If so, I want to jump on the bandwagon of modular design and need some recommendations on what to get.
*** I know I do not want a Corsair PSU. The reason is because while they have taken care of most of my issues in the past with my AIO coolers, it was always like pulling teeth with them and I just cannot contniue to support them, but you can. I do not want this thread to change into a conversation about why I should support them either! Thank you!!! ***
Here are some other requirements I have:
1) 700-850 PSU with a rating of Platinum or higher preferably, but will settle with Gold.
2) This isn't required, but it would be nice if it came out of the box with Series Single Sleeved cables. At the very least, I would want them to have the meshy sleeves.
3) Silent feature where the fan turns off if it's not being taxed and if it does turn on, it a quiet fan.
Money is not an issue here. I'd like to get the best if possible.
Thanks for the help!
