5 out of 5 eggsgood PSU-very good customer service

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 - 1300-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire-Ready

Pros: Is partially modular, heavy duty, has a protection circuit that shuts off the PSU before it can be shorted out. Big fan and LED color and shut off switch. Instructions are good. Rosewill customer service is very very good.I had to return the first one without then packaging, Rosewill told Newegg to accept it with no problem. I had to call technical service on the second one because I wasn't sure of something, they were right on top of it. Just remember to hook it up to the motherbd first, before powering it up.

Cons: none that I can think of

Other Thoughts: I've had it two months, no problems with it. Extremely quiet. You will need an extension cable for the motherBd power supply plug ins if you are using an ASUS rampage etx bd.

5 out of 5 eggsunexpectedly good

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 - 1300-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire-Ready

Pros: I got this thing solely because it was the cheapest psu at that wattage during a sale. I hated the design and thought the neon was tacky, but it was cheap and i needed it. Thankfully, it didn't out to be half as gaudy as pictured online. It actually looks quite elegant, even. I know, hard to imagine.

The cable case it came with was also a nice touch, with a surprisingly decent build quality.

Have had zero issues with performance, despite being just under the full wattage usage.

Very quiet, as is to be expected in a psu. Did not add any noticeable noise to the massive.

Cons: The cables could have been slightly longer, i found it difficult to reach far corners of my motherboard, and the cables seem unnecessarily thick, making them not very agile.

4 out of 5 eggsReview Update

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 - 1300-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire-Ready

Pros: The PSU has many modular Connections allowing for various peripheral add on's. Its 1300w supply should allow you to max out your rig, and the aesthetics are very nice with the led fan as well as the led's at the modular connection itself. Very clean looking braided power supply, and pci e connector. The modular connections are also braided which makes the look inside the rig clean and uniformed.

Cons: None as of yet. The fact I didn't buy more than one.

Other Thoughts: The PSU is very accommodating to maxing out a rig with multiple peripheral accessories. Looks very nice in the setup I have. I would suggest a full size ATX case, I chose a mid tower, although it looks nice it could use much more space the PSU is a bit big for the mid tower I picked out.

5 out of 5 eggsPower when I need it

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 - 1300-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire-Ready

Pros: Does what it is supposed to. Lots of cables for powering up all of your devices. Lights up at point of cable connection and has an off and selector switch for the light at fan on unit.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice to have a notch or arrow on the outside of power cable connection housings to hook up in tight cases quickly.

3 out of 5 eggsPSU

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 - 1300-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire-Ready

Pros: It has many modular connections, It has more than enough power to facilitate my needs for my build.

Cons: I will test it and update my review after my test. I give it three eggs for now until I can test it, The three eggs are for its aesthetics.

Other Thoughts: Looks impressive, I can't wait to test it. I have ordered most of my parts for the X-99 Build I am doing.

5 out of 5 eggsStill working strong

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 - 1300-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire-Ready

Pros: Been running a continuous 850 watts to my rig, It may be a bit overkill due to the fact that I cancelled my other 290x for Xfire. I purchased my unit back in 2012, basically I was gather parts for a upcoming build I was going to start with the new GPUs that were coming out in 2013 and was also to replace my burned out 650 Watt PSU.

Cons: None so far other than the lights that i'm unable to turn off from each of the modular cables. (Put electrical tape on them due to the light given off was multi-colored.

Other Thoughts: Wonderful unit, would buy again, I know the reviews here are hit or miss.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill LIGHTNING-1300 watt psu

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 - 1300-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire-Ready

Pros: no failure on my kids machine yet. she has a i5 4690k processor with a 290x vid card all on a mild overclock. lasted around nine months and counting

Cons: none, maybe have a way to light plug sockets without having to plug in cords

Other Thoughts: I may tear down more miners and use dual 290x on this psu. I will put it on my machine with a 4790k three hdds. and of course will overclock everything just so I can say its "overclocked" . btw overclocking easy on the asus z97 with a flip of the switches.
