5 out of 5 eggsPlenty of juice

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: Lots of power! Love the fact that you can connect only the needed cables to it and save on clutter inside your pc, great feature when you have a window in the side of your case.

Cons: Puts out some heat but any psu will do that.

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: Good psu for the money. It runs quietly and the cables are plenty long to run behind the motherboard in my corsair obsidian 800d

Cons: The 8 pin CPU motherboard connectors will need extensions if you want to run it behind the motherboard (but then again I've never bought a psu that doesn't need a CPU extension)

Other Thoughts: I've been buyin rosewill PSUs in all my rigs recently (I mine bitcoin with em) and I've never had 1 issue with any of them. The only thing with this one is the lights. U can't turn them off, so if u have a window in your case be prepared.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

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: Partially Modular
Looks pretty
No Issues so far, but I haven't gotten my GPUs to put in SLI to really test it yet.
Lots of cable options to connect in the modular cables.
Has a zip up case that organizes all the modular cable connectors.

Cons: Each modular connector only lights up if you have something connected into it.
Power connector for MB is a little short which will make it difficult when I put in big GPU cards.

Other Thoughts: Don't know how I would have enough room to connect all those things to the PSU to get all the colors (at least in my mid-tower case).

2 out of 5 eggsRosewill Tech Support Deletes Emails Seeking Honour Warranty

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: See other thoughts.

Cons: See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for a system build in late 2011. Cables covered in paracord exterior, with modular plug in setup. Cables are long preferably to reach devices in a big tower. Quiet operation, no issues until recently. It has worked fine up to earlier this year (2014), the PSU partially fried for unknown reasons and thus the computer would not turn on, and i state partially because, though there was a power cable attached to the PSU for power, it was still powering my cell phone charging from USB ports but no main power to motherboard other than mentioned. Tested plugs on powersupply and indeed main power was not functional.

Was more or less satisfied with this PSU unit until this mishap.

After the PSU burned out partially though about a month or so ago, i contacted "TECHSUPPORT@ROSEWILL.COM" for repair with limited warranty as advertised on NewEgg.ca ("Manufacturer Warranty | Parts - 7 Years limited | Labor - 7 Years limited.) and i did not receive any response for that email (which will make sense below). So a PSU was needed immediately and i replaced with a 1300 newer version of the Rosewill Lightning. So that has been installed and it's working so far. So back to the 1000W model by Rosewill that i'm reviewing here that fried on me. So i tried again to contact support at RoseWill.com tonight before typing out this product review, and this time around, when i sent both emails, i added the option to the email for "Request a Read Receipt"... and this was the return email;

------
Your message
To: ts.service.wh1(rw).us
Subject: RE: Seeking Honour Of 7 Year Warranty.
Sent: Friday, April 18, 2014 10:50:07 PM (UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)

was deleted without being read on Friday, April 18, 2014 10:58:48 PM (UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada).
------

So i sent another right after this receipt of this above response, and again i got the same return email telling me my email was deleted WITHOUT being read.

Seems Rosewill doesn'care about standing behind their products (as in my case) but more about revenue generation than 7 year limited warranties. Sure the product is not bad at all, mostly good quality components, built well mostly, but when it breaks, don't expect Rosewill to always 'read' your email for product support which is quite angering & unfair practice nor return an email for support of the warranty because lamentably they don't even care to read your email, they just delete them as evidenced above. I bought another of their products (1300w PSU) only because i needed quick setup due to the electrical type connectors so it was an easy switch.

My next PSU won't be a Rosewill unless i have no other choice and they honour the original warranty.

1 out of 5 eggsHighly disappointing.

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: NONE!!!

Cons: It took me a while to get all the parts for my build money was kind of tight at the time. but i finally got around to getting all the parts. everything is perfect till i hit the switch and soon fined out after much trouble shooting that i was sent a bad power supply. Clearly its way to late to get a replacement. I looked around and come to find out that I'm not the only one who got a bad PSU.

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...

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
