5 out of 5 eggsMine Worked

This review is from: Rosewill TACHYON -650 650W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS PLATINUM, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Great Price after rebate. Mine came working fine.

Cons: None to speak of yet.

Other Thoughts: A lot of DOA's reported, which made me slightly nervous, but I assumed that the reviews are skewed since the disgruntled people who got one DOA are more likely to review than a happy customer. I, personally am happy with my new energy efficient supply.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

This review is from: Rosewill TACHYON -650 650W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS PLATINUM, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Great array of connections for an ATX mid-tower, smooth supply for a Z97/4790K system. Platinum efficiency at a low price on specials!

Cons: Bundled modular cables have somewhat odd port spacing, ATX cable somewhat stiff

Other Thoughts: I'm really happy with this PSU, as it gives me enough headroom to pursue significant upgrades down the road. No complaints in the current configuration with an Asus Z97-PRO wifi with i7-4790K and two drives in the box.

1 out of 5 eggsI should've listened

This review is from: Rosewill TACHYON -650 650W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS PLATINUM, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: It comes with extra wires.

Cons: It was DOA. I should've listened to the other reviewers, this is more than a chance people, these are more often than not DOA. Last time I trust any of Rosewill's hardware. Parts are evidently pretty low-grade here and that's literally the last thing I look for.
Secondly, if you do decide to buy it, be prepared for the wires to be split at awkward, legacy points, which if you're installing into a tight space like I was, makes connecting the plugs virtually impossible. One standard six pin CPU cable is broken up into two halfs for example. I had to superglue several of the plugs halfs together just to be able to get them in and flush.
As you can see, the power cord coming out of the back of the unit is much more equipped than I was expecting from a modular PSU, this leaves you with a thick chord (5-6 Individually wrapped and then twist-tied together about the width of a garter snake.

Other Thoughts: Do.
Not.
Buy.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

This review is from: Rosewill TACHYON -650 650W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS PLATINUM, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: There was an awesome discount on this, down to 99 from 139. I wanted something fully modular or modular and platinum rated. This was by far the best deal higher than 550W. Plenty of extra cords, easy install, works great. Half the reviews for this are great, the other half said DOA, took a shot, great bargain!

Cons: None so far.

Pros: All Japanese made components= very high quality and efficiency!
7 year warranty= lifetime worry-free usage
power generated and delivered are robust

Cons: price is over the top or almost unreasonable

Other Thoughts: If you are a gamer/computer user with a high-taste on expensive products and picky about quality and efficiency on a psu, then this unit is right for you

This review is from: Rosewill TACHYON -650 650W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS PLATINUM, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: N/A

Cons: Dead on arrival

Other Thoughts: We'll see how Rosewill customer service does with sending out a replacement. A dead PSU is a real buzzkill when you're excited to get your new PC build up and running

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Please check the following

1. Do the paper clip test on the power supply itself to ensure it is defective.

2. If failed then contact us for a replacement (if within warranty)
3. If pass then continue troubleshooting entire system.

Feel free to contact the Rosewill Customer Support team for further assistance at 1-800-575-9885 Monday - Friday 8AM - 5PM PST or via email at techsupport@rosewill.com

Pros: Only paid $83.99 after promo code with free shipping!!! 80+ platinum, modular, every cable you will ever need, 650 watts on single 12 volt rail. 5 year warranty, solid construction. Rosewill is stepping up and delivering a quality product here for a good price.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor first impression

This review is from: Rosewill TACHYON -650 650W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS PLATINUM, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Probably a stable PSU, when it works.

Cons: This was my first Rosewill product and it was dead on arrival. Poor first impression for the brand. Will not be supporting the company in future PC builds.

Other Thoughts: First impressions are everything. I've used PSUs of various brands, the most reliable being Corsair, and this is the first defective model I've ever had.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
