5 out of 5 eggsSolid build

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: An absolute powerhouse. Turning on my machine makes me feel like a mad scientist as all the lights in my room flicker once. The modular cables really helped clean up my PC. It comes with a nice carrying case to store all the unused cables (Its the small things, you know?).

Cons: Not fully modular as the 12 pin connector bundle is integrated in. My build needs all those cables so I was unaffected.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not last - RMA process is a painful one

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: Beautiful when its hooked up in a windowed case, easy modular system helps the installation process.

Cons: Stopped working after 8 months, completely dead with no warnings. Rosewill took three days to respond and said to send it back to Newegg who would not pay for shipping. 8 month year old dead PSU - no computer for three weeks and I am out $25 shipping fee for having made the mistake of purchasing a faulty product.

Other Thoughts: Go with something more functional - this unit is made solely to look good and not to last.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet! almost like solar!!

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: A large 140mm cooling fan, Lots of connector included but you just plug in what you need, this save space inside the case. 5 Years warranty (I hope I won't need to use it), Crossfire ready.

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I use it with ASUS Z87 Pro, did not use it with multi gpu so I probably not putting any pressure on it and I have full size case with multiple fan. I also use the power cable that comes with it (always use what the engineer design with it), we don't know how much they spend but they did spend time to put things together. Don't just swap it with similar looking cable unless you know that it's an upgrade.

2 out of 5 eggsDead in just under 3 months.

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: Ran very well for a single rail, granted I was only pulling 930 watts from it, but all in all ran cool and delivered power very well.

Cons: Died in just under 3 months, was watching TV and the computer idling besides me then all a sudden I nice pop and then fans whirling down to a halt. PSU just blew up while idling, and on top of that, blew my CPU.

Other Thoughts: Hope my replacement fairs better.

1 out of 5 eggsOK while it lasted

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: At the time, this was a good priced 1300 Watt unit. It had good reviews. Unit worked well for 10-11 months.

Cons: Unit started to die last week. Connections in the 20+4 connection have come loose in the housing and are causing my system to see voltage irregularities and causes full shut down. Upon inspection, it's clear that connections are starting to pull away from the housing.

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: 80 Plus gold, all around great for price.

Cons: love how you can switch fan led lights color or simply trun off, wish the socket light had same feature, not a biggie.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective

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: Very nice modular design, fancy LEDs.

Cons: As the title says, it came in defective. First, my CPU showed major overheating problems and a few days later my entire PC crashed and woudn't reboot. Upon reinstalling my old PSU, the same problem persisted Now that I have a completely new mobo and CPU, I was also able to determine that my RAM was fried along with my old CPU, so buyer beware: back up all files before installing a new computer part, as I did. Fortunately, what I now have to replace the damage done is almost worth the money I had to spend to send this brick of a PSU back.

Other Thoughts: Very fortunately I was able to get a full refund, and it was processed quickly. So, there's that.

1 out of 5 eggsWas great, until it burst into flames!

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: Loved the color LED's on the back. Came with a very nice case for all the cords. Provided plenty of power for my machine.

Cons: After two weeks I was playing Splinter Cell when smoke came pouring out of my computer case. Went to shut down and the there was a pop and the back of the power supply, where all the cords come out, literally caught on fire. I had to rip the plug out, rip the cover off the side of the case and blow it out. It looks like the cord that goes to my CPU fan was the one that melted. It also melted some of the other cables going to my video card and hard drives. Thankfully the power supply was at the top of my HUGE case so it wasn't close enough to damage any other components.

Other Thoughts: Got a different PS and haven't had any issues with it or overheating, etc. Called Rosewill, explained the situation, and they immediately offered me a refund. It's the first Rosewill I ever purchased and would probably try them again, but not right now on my new $2500+ system. I probably just drew the short straw for a defective unit, but still, it's a little hard to get over physical flames shooting out of my computer!
