1 out of 5 eggsSpecs Not Correct

This review is from: Rosewill Hive-650, Hive Series 650W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready

Pros: I never installed the unit. Can't say.

Cons: This unit did not have the advertised 4x6+2 PCI-E connectors. It only had two. The user manual only listed two as well.

I have no comment on the quality of the unit otherwise. I never installed it. Future buyers can probably ignore this comment once the error gets sorted out. Check the specs carefully.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsGood looking, not working

This review is from: Rosewill Hive-650, Hive Series 650W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready

Pros: Well, it looks good on paper for the need I had.

Cons: Well, since it's modular, the clipping seemed flimsy. I didn't know if it was in or not. I had to push a little bit to reassure myself.

The rail were stiff, maybe because it was new ? But I had some trouble plug in the 20+4 pins.

The 4+4 pins wasn't intuitive as well. When split, had some confusion as to which plug was going into the mobo.

Other Thoughts: So far, I can't recommend this PSU, but Rosewill do make nice product. I just hope it was a rare occurence.

This review is from: Rosewill Hive-650, Hive Series 650W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready

Pros: nice wattage

Cons: It died randomly the next day, had to buy another one and return this for a refund because of defect. So obviously since mine was defected i did not like.

1 out of 5 eggsEXPLODED!!!

This review is from: Rosewill Hive-650, Hive Series 650W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready

Pros: Looked good. Big sleek fan. Cables were surprisingly nice as well as the packaging. Some reviews said the cables were uncovered, not the case with mine. All covered black and a nice little zip bag that was in expected from a cheap brand but appreciated.

Cons: The capacitors exploded while I was away.
Built my first rig, so excited. This was the last part I bought. Worked for literaly 14 hours. Installed os and set up, went to bed. The next day I used the web browser to set up my steam and start installing a few games from library. Went to a friends house for 4 hours to play some xbox to pass the time while I was installing, come home and my room had a very sweet aroma. Sounded fine but shut it off just incase. At first I assumed just some out gassing but I decided I better shine a flash light into their before I plugged it back in (all my other parts were running for about 2 weeks in a loner rig so I knew the smell had to be the psu). About 4-6 of the capacitors have exploded some white "marshmallowy" ooze all over the other components. It is 100% not glue as there's a lump the size of a golf ball on one of the coils (even a trained chimp wouldn't pour glue there in that quantity). My mother has no computer component knowledge, but I remembered she soldered for an extremely large international company for many years so I asked her to take a look. She laughed and told me it was THE WORST soldering she'd ever seen in her life and couldn't decide wether it was comical or scary that it ever made it out of the factory. And the fact that it blew several capacitors without any form of electrical phenomena was a sure sign that they were most if not all installed to the poorest quality.

I'm horrified that my house could've burned down while I was out. And it didn't even run long enough to stress test! I didn't play a single game on it! Can you imagine if this would've popped at load!

The worst part of all was the smell. It took me nearly a week the get the smell out of the room. I had to sleep on the couch for 3 days because it would give you headaches. I still sometimes get little pockets of the smell and unfortunately I have to change my tv stand where it sat and possibly my carpet if it doesn't dissipate completely soon.

I've been so mad I'm waiting till the bitter end of my return window I don't even want to deal with returning this thing.
This thing is going to cost me 4 times what I payed for it just replace my carpet and furniture.

Do not buy this for your safety. And I appears that since I bought mine it's dropped a full egg. It's as if there was an entire bad batch. Never again Rosewill. I will be buying something else.

Other Thoughts: I had to type this review on my mobile because for obvious reasons my PC is not running!!! So sorry for the autocorrect nonsense and angry gibberish. This single handedly ruined the magic of my first build.and my carpet. And tv stand.

2 out of 5 eggsHorrible, Defective Product

This review is from: Rosewill Hive-650, Hive Series 650W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready

Pros: Pros - It powers your computer for a while.
- Arrives early (Thanks to Newegg - great seller)

Cons: Cons - After 4-5 months, it randomly explodes inside your computer tower, leaking vile-smelling capacitor fluid all over the bottom of your case. Don't worry - cleaning the fluid up is nice though. Just remember to soak it up before it leaks over to your lower HDD!

Other Thoughts: Purchased this around 5 months ago and initially, it was fine. It powered my build and I had no problems. Then, one day after playing games for exactly 2 hours, it popped, sizzled, and filled my room with disgusting, horrible spelling smoke. I'm lucky it didn't destroy everything inside my case. Thankfully, my Mobo is fine.

2 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: Rosewill Hive-650, Hive Series 650W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready

Pros: Looked like a good unit for price.

Cons: Did not work in my system. Swapped out old PC and it looked like the SATA, Peripheral modular connections did not work. RMA and going with a different brand.

This review is from: Rosewill Hive-650, Hive Series 650W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready

Pros: nice modular design.

Cons: Have been waiting 2 weeks to get a working one, received the 2nd replacement one and its DOA as well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

This review is from: Rosewill Hive-650, Hive Series 650W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready

Pros: Runs silent. Relatively cheap (bought it at $79.99). Power cables are long enough for my full tower where PSU is at the bottom and connectors are at the top. Flat cables makes management easy.

Cons: None at this point.

Other Thoughts: My 9-years old 550W Rosewill PSU finally bit the dust and I bought this one to replace it. It's my first modular PSU and I swear I will never go back to non-modular. Hope this one will last another 9 years. Recommend.
