Summary: I had bought a Seasonic which to my understanding was supposed to be the best brand in power supplies, but it died after just 2-3 months of light to moderate use. No overclocking, no monster GPU, just average gear. So I bought this Rosewill hoping it would perform at lease as well as the Seasonic. Well this Rosewill actually surpassed my expectations. It has been performing perfectly for months now.
Summary: For the price I believe if your wanting a 1000w PSU give this a shot and I think you'll be happy with it.
Pros: Bought mine in 2010 and still running strong. Got mine while it was on sale since it was a 1000w PSU and was running SLI at the time. Honestly wasn't sure what to expect as I had never really used Rosewill, but after 4 years with no issues I'll look at them again. Never had issues with noise or anything else.
Pros: The power supply has been with me for more than a year now with now hiccups. No coil noises, no surges, nothing. But as the year went on I upgrade all my fans to the noctua nf-f12 and boy the psu is so loud! I can easily hear it through my noise canceling headphones from across the room! I just got rid of it a few days ago and upgraded to a passive cooled psu.
Summary: I like this power supply but, in hind sight, I would've spent $20 more and gotten a full modular power supply with longer cables and a gold rating
Pros: Good power supply. It provides plenty of juice to power my gaming rig and even glows blue as an added bonus, not super bright and obnoxious either! Half modular cables leaves plenty of room for expansion and power sucking parts.
Cons: This PS is not fully modular, only half modular and the nonmodular cables are somewhat short. I wish they were a bit longer so I could have cleaner cable management, but if that's not important to you, then it's a decent buy, especially for the price. Only bronze rated, so be warned, this power supply does draw a lot of power. I had my rig and a space heater on the same circuit, which is bad idea to begin with, I know, and it blew the breaker once game graphics got he...
Summary: Does the job. Good power for the price, and quiet enough. It's partially modular, but there are still some permanent connectors I'm not using which is annoying. The cables are good quality and more flexible than other cables I've used. Also note you have to hold the power switch down for several seconds the first time you turn it on. Spent an hour or so debugging/freaking out because I wasn't getting anything out of it.
Summary: Not sure if I will ever use a Rosewill PSU. I only wish I had realized that it was the PSU causing the problems earlier. Will try to return it but not very hopeful (should have gotten the 1 year extended warranty). I went with the 1000W PSU because I have a large number of HDD's in RAID configuration as well as a top line GPU. Don't actually need 1000W however.
Cons: Malfunctioned. Took me a while and three mother boards (2 Asus Sabertooth and 1 Gigabyte). Loads of frustration on my part, not to mention the financial strain on the wallet :-( All told, this PSU cost me well over $500.00.
