1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy it Until they get Quality Control

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: Nice fans, quiet, compact, LED's are really cool

Cons: Failed just after a single month. PSU no longer provides enough power to run the computer graphics, although it did boot momentarily

Other Thoughts: This has to be a quality control issue, because the PSU never fully failed but everytime I start the computer the screen now flashes green pixels on and off everywhere, originally I was convinced my GPU had failed, so I pulled it out and used intergrated graphics to the same effect, then I shut down the computer and tried to restart but the PSU lights and fans would turn on for a second and then fail.... continuously. The computer isn't booting anymore.

PC specs:
ZOTAC GTX 970
8 gig single stick Hyperfury X RAM
i5-4960k
H60 watercooler
Z97I Mobo (Mini ITX)
System has 2x120mm fans

Estimated Wattage: 384 watts
Supposed available wattage: 450

Result: Disappointed with Rosewill, as this was my first product I bought from them

4 out of 5 eggsDelivers the power my PC needs, however there are some issues

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: +Delivers the right amount of power my current PC needs
+Reasonably priced
+Blue LEDs look nice

Cons: -Cables are bit too short
-Weird coil noise coming from the PSU after 5 years of use (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: I have had this PSU since 2009 and it hasn't given me a problem since then until recently a few months ago where the PSU makes a loud pitch whine noise for a few minutes after turning on the PC or waking it up from Sleep mode. It doesn't effect performance or system stability, but the noise is very annoying. Thankfully, it doesn't last long and goes away after a few minutes of using the PC until I boot up my PC from shut down/sleep mode.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I wanted

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: I knew this PS would work because I have purchased nearly a dozen of them - covering 10 years. Have only had 2 fail and they were nearly 10 years old.
Chose NewEgg Supersaver shipping and it still only took 2 days to get here!! WOW!

Cons: Product in the box was correct, but packing slip belonged to someone in a completely different state, and for a completely different product.

3 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: its nice led was cheap when i got it and no functioning problems

Cons: it only gave me about 350-400 watts, i suggest getting a 80+ so that you get at least 400+ watts from a 500watt psu

4 out of 5 eggsGreat PSO with only one flaw

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: First things first:
Price/quality ratio is amazing on this one. I've bought several Rosewill products in the past, and as their motto goes, they offer outstanding value for the dollar paid, and this PSU is no exception.
- Great build quality; doesn't look or feel cheap.
- Twin fans and built-in temp sensor help keep it cool.
- The bottom fan fits very well in a case with bottom-mounted PSU option, with an air filter underneath it, more and more common in newer cases; for me it is a Rosewill Challenger case.
- Quiet, reliable up to now and provides ample power for my needs.
- Quality wiring with mesh protection; for PSU wiring looks great in your case.

Cons: Now with all the Pros, what possible con might it have?
Well, as others have mentioned, indeed it is true:
The power cable for the motherboard's CPU power connector is MUCH too short. It pains me to say this, since it is still a great product and I love Rosewill products in general, but the cable for this connector is simply much too short for a bottom-mounted psu case, where it must often go all the way up on the motherboard to connect.

I managed to squeeze the cable just barely behind a space nestled in between my video card and motherboard. Just recently caved in and decided to buy an extension for the cable though, so it wouldn't be squeezed or stretched too much.

Keep in mind this is in a regular mid tower chassis, from Rosewill no less, the Challenger Case.

Other Thoughts: Had to knock off an egg for the short cable, but apart from that it's simply an amazing PSU, do not regret at all buying it.

Recommended for the great value and quality it represents.

PS: I noticed a Rosewill rep going through these reviews and answering the most negative ones, responding by saying the issues would be sent to the R & D teams. Please take note of the short CPU connector wire and forward the message. Keep up the good work though, great products!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price and performance!

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: Amazingly quiet for 80mm fans, great cooling, works in my top mount and bottom mount case, 2x 6 pin PCI-e for graphics, strong 12v rail, cheap and trustworthy, nice blue LED lights for my case look ;)

Cons: Need a case with vents on the bottom if case is made for bottom mount PSU (Intake fan).

Other Thoughts: I bought this from my friend after he owned it for a few months, and its now powering my oversized bus of a graphics card (XFX GeForce 9800 GTX+) along with my Athlon II x2 270 with no issues under load!

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: Consistant power
Longevity
Quiet

Cons: Have never found one.

Other Thoughts: I have had this power supply in my case for 6 years now. Because my machine is always working it very rarely is shut down. This power supply has been worked very hard and has never failed me until recently. It is finally giving up and occasionally shutting down. I am so happy with it that I a purchassing another one to replace it.
