3 out of 5 eggs2 years of colors

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-800 800W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Easy Cables to work with, plenty of connections to work with in a gaming rig.

Colorful lighting (optional)

Quiet.

Cons: Is dying after 2 years of use. Periodically shuts off at random, leaving one rather irritated. I know this is a thing among power supplies, but I've had many other power supplies last me much longer than this without a hitch.

I do not overclock, and my system requires far less than the 800W this PSU provides. All in all, this makes me a sad panda.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this has been a fair power supply. I'm just disappointed with the lifespan considering the price I paid for it at the time. I had never tried Rosewill before, and depending on the Customer service, may or may not continue with them in the future.

3 out of 5 eggsVery nice PSU

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-800 800W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: This PSU is obviously built for a gaming rig (comes with a total of 6 PCIE connectors!) so ANY sort of graphics cards array you can think of is sure to be supported.

at 800watts and 80+ gold certification, it is certainly one quality PSU that allows for all sorts of upgrades.

I also really like the connectors that each come with their own little compression collar, combined with the fact that each connector and header is keyed, only allowing it to be inserted one way, the cables are extremely secure once in place.

it does look very nice with all it's lights, but beyond that, they actually serve a pretty significant purpose if you use a little imagination. You see, the lights around the connectors will still light up if there is a cable attached even if there isn't some sort of hardware at the end of that cable, so basically, the first step of troubleshooting a specific component will be as simple as looking to make sure all lights are on, if any of them are off then that means it won't even be getting an electrical signal at all

Cons: for what this thing costs, I would certainly have liked for the 20+4 and 4+4 connectors to also be modular, but that is not by any means a deal-breaker to me

Other Thoughts: First thing I did, and first thing I recommend anyone who might buy this product do, is plug in all of the cables and use a 24 pin short to test all the LED lights on the power supply BEFORE you install it. I was lucky enough (this time-_-) to have all my LEDs working, but that is rarely the case when I buy anything computer related that has lights in it...

5 out of 5 eggsEffective and Efficient

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-800 800W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Pretty Colors
Quiet
Stable

Cons: Only Red Blue LEDs are available; can't turn of the lights on the modular connectors

Other Thoughts: I've had this power supply for about a year and two months and it hasn't even hiccuped on me. Not once. Definitely reliable and effective, even when overclocking. If you're looking for some flare combined with decent power supply and reliability, then I recommend this PSU for you.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-800 800W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Works great, has a nice bag to keep your extra cables stored away.. I only use two plugins for the entire computer which are plugged into the blue lighting slots which matches the LED's in my computer case.. :)

Cons: Only cons I can see is that due to it being semi-modular, you'll need to have a LOT of space let's say like a full tower case for cable management. There are just a few plugins but each cable has a ton of extras to plug in to all your parts..Granted, if you have the space for management you don't need many plugin slots used on the actual PSU so it makes the system seem a lot cleaner.. Just keep in mind you NEED the extra space with this PSU.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm really happy with this PSU.. And it has a 7 year warranty with it so I'm guaranteed that if something goes wrong with it Rosewill will make it right.. :)

Pros: Nicely priced for a gold rated PSU. The lighted colors are also pretty cool to add to a system full of other lights. Also got it for a pretty killer deal at the time. Runs quiet and is extremely efficient.

Cons: No cons with it yet.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet power, Sweet Lights

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-800 800W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: This PSU is Sweet! Love the modular style. It has plenty of power options. Has 2 lighting choices.. red, blue and off. The modular side lights up as well but is set at blue. Never had any problems with this PSU going bad or having any problems so far. 5 months and it will be 2 years since I had it. Cords come in a nice bag case and nice and long for all your big cases. Low temp and 80 PLUS GOLD just a bonus. the CPU power, Mainboard power, and 2 pcie 4/6 pin power are not modular though.

Cons: Really no cons, wish the color would change the modular side as well and wish it was a bit brighter. Wish it had a little more options for more SLI, for big cards it looks like it could handle sli 3 way but that is max it comes with 6 pcie power hookups but most newer cards will take at least 2 of those a piece.

Other Thoughts: Got this as a replacement for another failed Rosewill PSU which they refunded me and I just bought this with the difference and never had anymore problems. Love the lighting and modular hookups. Plenty of options with power cables and plenty of length of cable that comes with a nice storage bag. Everything runs great and haven't had any problems. Another 5 months and it will have been 2 years since I bought this PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-800 800W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Fan is very quiet on this PSU, love those modular cables.. Very easy to figure out and setup.. On a full tower case, the cables are just barely long enough though so you may need either some extenders or you'll really have to work it in, but it fit my Azza Hurrican case just fine.. :) Love the blue and red lighting, it's bright but not too bright.. Same brightness as my case LED's.. Lights can be turned off too if you aren't into visuals

Cons: None so far, haven't had it long enough for a con though

Other Thoughts: Overall I love the PSU.. Has plenty of power for my gaming system, looks wicked, and is easy to setup.. 80+Gold certified and has a 7 year warranty. Can't go wrong with that :)
