2 out of 5 eggsDissapointed

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 1000W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: 1000w
SLI/CF ready
Nice appearance
Lighting - Red was my fav to match my PC build

Cons: Dead after about a couple weeks worth of use.

Other Thoughts: I believe something happened with this thing to short out my motherboard. I sent my motherboard back and got it repaired and it's working now but the computer will boot up and then just shut back down... Sometimes I can't even POST - Most of the time if I let it sit for a while(turned off), when I try to turn it back on, it may get past windows and to the desktop, then randomly shut off. Then other times, it wont even get past the BIOS screen.

(flashed the bios atleast 10 times)

Power supply is faulty - Bought a replacement EVGA Platinum rated and it works fine.

Going to try to return and get my money back or at least have it as a backup PSU if they get it repaired or replaced..

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 1000W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Just an update of my earlier review. The first one I recieved was DOA, but neweggs customer service was extrememly helpful in getting the RMA handled. I live in a remote area so shipping can be a hassle, but they got the dead one and sent me a replacement within 7 days. Good job on the helpful staff there! The new powersupply installed without any further issues and I am having no complications yet.

Cons: I wish the front lights were selectable as well as the fan light. It would also help to have a couple of the SATA and MOLEX cables come in a bit longer lengths.

1 out of 5 eggsFail after 8 months

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 1000W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Nice looking great LEDS and connectivity.

Cons: No reliability. Just fails without reason. PC just all of a sudden shutdown. The system was protected on a APC 1500 VA battery backup system. I will not buy another one of these. @nd one of this model has failed again.

1 out of 5 eggsAbout to return for 3rd time

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 1000W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Nice look and cable design. Good warranty.

Cons: Doesn't last long.

Other Thoughts: If you like spending the cash to continually ship back to them for a replacement every few months, this PS is for you. This will be the 3rd time I have to RMA this product. So now I have to put my gaming on hold again due to another failure. I have had my mobo checked out to make sure it wasn't the problem. I really regret buying this power supply.

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 1000W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Shipped fast and looks nice.

Cons: Dead on arrival. Unfortunatly I didnt't start my build and plug it in until 31 days after placing the order. It takes us a little longer to get things in Alaska, so 1 day outside of the RMA window. Tough luck for me.

2 out of 5 eggsDead On Arrival

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 1000W 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 like the design of the PSU. The thumb screws make attaching it to the case easy, and the power cables that they provide come in a nice zip-up case.

Cons: The unit was dead on arrival.

Other Thoughts: I gave this two stars. One for the fact that it is covered under New Egg's standard return policy (having a refund for a failure is appreciated)

The second star was given because although my unit does not work, I respect what they tried with the design. For those of you that got a working unit, I hope you enjoy it.

For me, I am going to get a refund and go with the Corsair unit that I wanted to go with initially.

5 out of 5 eggsMore than necessary

This review is from: Rosewill LIGHTNING-1000 1000W 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 thing is great. More than enough power and it's lasting a long time. I just wrote a review about a different Rosewill product saying that it crapped out. It is hit or miss with these guys, but this product is stellar. And I got $100 off so that made me really happy! Fully modular, and I've got so many thing plugged into this. I think it's probably for a 4 way SLI or CrossFire. There is no way you can use the full wattage of this thing without running multi GPU setup.

Cons: Non so far. It's great!

Other Thoughts: I wish I could turn the colors around the rings off, but minor details.

PLENTY of cables / Molex/Sata/GPU

Other Thoughts: The cables that come with the power supply are fairly thick. Get some cable ties and a case that allows decent cable management.
