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.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great For Me!

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: Really can't complain, I now own 3 of these units in 3 computer builds. The first two power supplies I bought back in early 2013 to try them out, as I really liked all of the lighting they provide; all three still work great to this day. It's the only supply I found so far that lights all up, just what I was looking for! I intend to buy another Rosewill Lightning 1300 later this year for another computer build. Each power supply gives you all the cables you need and more in nice looking zip up cases with zip ties and hardware.

Cons: None really. Not sure why the negative reviews come up, unless there's a bad batch of power supplies, or some are DOA because the switch is turned off or the power cord isn't all the way inserted.

Other Thoughts: I don't use all of the ports the power supply gives you, I use as few as possible to keep the load and stress down. Plus I make sure it gets plenty of air to vent out the heat. In winter, these heat up the computer room nice and toasty with the door closed, no need to run the furnace. Also, when I am not using the computer for a week, I try to either unplug or switch off the power supply. I have had many people in the computer world tell me that's the best way to make a power supply last a long time.

1 out of 5 eggsDANGER! Danger Will Robinson! DANGER!

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: Looks awesome, lots of cables.

Cons: First one died early one morning while system wad idle. Rosewill was quick to replace the defective unit stating that its a common problem.. They sent the same model that blew out. i installed it figuring they would have fixed the issue being as it was "a common problem".. I was wrong. Lesd than a month into using this second PSU I was again awaken to a loud pop one morning and once again found my new computer dead.

Other Thoughts: Will stick to just cases from Rosewill from now on. I will never recommend a psu by Rosewill. I will however strongly discurage anyone from even looking at them.

2 out of 5 eggsJust Died Today :(

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: Bought it on 11/29/13, Worked like a dream for a little over a year! Happy it did last longer than a year though.

Cons: Just died today on 1/17/15. Tried swapping it out on my backup computer that i have that works just fine with an old PSU, and it did the same thing that it was doing in my computer, lights would come on for a split second then go out. I had high hopes that it would last a lot longer than a year and almost 2 months. Can't have everything perfect i guess.

Other Thoughts: I just used the PSU from my backup computer and my comp is running normally now. Guess I'll have to give EVGA a go, been seeing some stellar reviews on a lot of their products.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid build

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: 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 – 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: 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 – 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: 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.
