4 out of 5 eggsVery nice PSU

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 1300W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Excellent wattage output, 1350W should support up to 3X GPUs, or even 4X, depending on total power requirements.

80 Plus Gold rating (min. 87%/90%/87% efficient at 20%/50%/100% loads, respectively.)

PSU tester showed all outputs good and within specified parameters, all voltages were very slightly over spec (which is better than under spec, less chance of "brownouts" as device loads change.)

Single 12V rail reduces worries about sub-par amps/watts to any devices, especially those hungry, hungry graphics cards.

Very ample pre-sheathed PCIe, SATA and Molex cables included in handy nylon carrier pouch. Modular cables so only those required need be used. Cables heads are all labeled as to type of connector and the bases screw-down very securely to the PSU, no worries about pulling or vibrating loose.

Fan LEDs adjust from red to blue to disabled, helps to integrate into existing color schemes.

Modular-cable connectors light up when connected, a nice touch beyond the status quo.

20+4-pin main motherboard cable was plenty long for my build, most other cables also adequately long.

Includes a set of 4 regular mounting screws as well as 4 mounting thumbscrews, which are a nice addition.

Cons: 8-pin/4+4-pin CPU1 and CPU2 cables are just too short, these should be ~3" longer to fit comfortably in large tower cases. Also, since typically only 1 of these is required, it would have been nice if 1 was modular instead of both being bundled with the permanently attached group.

PSU is huge, just barely fits into my full-tower case base without impinging on the floor intake 140mm fan.

Included manual is fairly useless, no illustrations and very little guidance on choosing/connecting the proper cables. Users who are unfamiliar with different cable types might have a fair amount of difficulty here. The Rosewill website offers no additional assistance, only a PDF version of the same material.

Once device cables are connected, there's no way to choose the color of the ring at the connector base, but that's not a huge issue. It would be nice to be able to select the colors, though, similar to how you can select the FAN LED color (red/blue/off.)

Other Thoughts: All in all, I'm very pleased with this PSU. I've owned it for almost 4 months before I was ready to install during an upgrade to CrossfireX, but it's been running perfectly for about 1 week now, only time will tell regarding its ultimate longevity.

If it wasn't for the 8-pin and 4+4-pin cables both being just barely long enough to reach the motherboard connector when routed behind the tray, I would have given this PSU 5 Eggs. The other "Cons" by themselves wouldn't have warranted a deduction in light of all the positives.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent part2

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 1300W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: btw I must add to the previous (and somewhat ranting) message that the boxing was impeccable. First Newegg, with air-cushioned plastic bags. Then Rosewill : I could feel the box edges stiffness (meaning they were never opened) after unwrapping a plastic pellicule. When opening, a draft of "New Electronica Odor Fragrance" erupted from the box... Never felt that "newyness" after buying from a standard bricks'n mortar shop.Thumbs up all along.

Cons: None. So far for this one. The other has "none" either after 2 years.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 1300W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: I just received it, however it's my second buy of this PSU (from another account for a client), thus I can say that it's excellent, works as intended (and better) and it looks cool :-).

Cons: As many other PSU out there, the cables for the Mobo are too short. I don't understand why manufacturers just don't correct this flaw (yes it's a « flaw by design » - a ridiculous notion too many manufacturers are embracing), since we all know most PSU cables used for powering the motherboard are too short. I won't remove an egg since it's not a particularity of this PSU, but someone should tell them . Oh they are doing this on purpose you say? Of course else they would be quite stupid , they have to do this on purpose! Like for the sake of annoying system builders...

1 out of 5 eggsDead already

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 1300W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Looked cool?

Cons: It' died in less than 4 months. Took my 2 year old Corsair power supply out of the pc I was replacing and that is working great.

Other Thoughts: Doubt I will buy any other Rosewill products.

Pros: In the 8 months that I've had this, it's been great the entire time. I just love looking at it, it's just so pretty. 1300W is great for my power-hungry computer and the lights just make the item.

Cons: Can't think of any

4 out of 5 eggsGood PSU But...

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 1300W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Obscene amount of power and a huge single 12v rail.

Cons: First one died a year and a half after purchase.

Other Thoughts: This PSU is great, it'll power whatever you have in mind guaranteed. It did die on me right before the big snow. I was all set to work from home and when I powered the machine on i heard a pop and that was it. RMA took 3 weeks but they were accommodating because i didn't have the box or some of the accessories. I haven't stress tested the replacement yet but so far so good. I'd buy it again if I had to.

2 out of 5 eggsConstant RMA Required

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 1300W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Works well for a period of time. Decent price and output. The only reason I give it 2 eggs is because they are decent with the RMA's usually only about 2 weeks downtime.

Cons: I have owned 6 of these and have had to RMA all but one. And even had to RMA 2 of them a 2nd time. I don't push them beyond there limits at most I run about 1000 watts through them and they have lasted for as little as a month before needing to be RMA'd. I use them for mining and have used many different power supplies and this is the 2nd worst one that I have owned. Only one worse I bought 5 of for $40 a piece and not only did they not work but they actually damaged other components and the power supplies that they were paired with.

Other Thoughts: This is the first review I have ever written and I have spent 10s of thousands on Newegg So that should say something for my displease with this PSU. It is ok for the money if you don't mind paying for the shipping to keep getting it fixed. Atleast they are pretty decent about RMA's.

5 out of 5 eggselegant very colorful so.

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 1300W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: This piece of advance technology was actually found on a ufo, we discovered the crashed ufo from the rave music playing from it. We where going to call authority's but instead we went inside and started dancing we didnt know why we were dancing it just felt... right, 2 days later we exited the ufo and ran back home are family was unaware we even left, we went back into our rooms and slept for 56 hours straight. after awakening we noticed this strange glowing rave colored object in our closet, we were to curious we had to take a look at it and that is what we did. Upon 23 years later we discovered it was a psu or... power supply unit, we decided to place it into our pc witch at the time was a Dell Optiplex G270, we plugged it in booted it up and a strange beeping noise started, it then started to beep faster and faster and faster till the final beep hit... we where then blasted into the future 10 years. The shock on jimmy and my faces was stronk, we then took a vow to not ever turn the pc on ever again, till one day we decided to do it again, once again the beep was going off beep beep bep bep bp bp b .... a strange dubby wubby sound came out of the speakers with loud base and wub sounds we then decided to name it, we named it dubstep. Approximatly 10 years later we found out what it was but we will get to that later, After letting the dubstep play for 10 mins we heard chopper sounds and a banging on the door, the united states army was knocking on our door we opend the door and are both shot. the end

Cons: we died at the end.

Other Thoughts: one does not simply buy a power supply unit for 250.00$
