This review is from: Rosewill Xtreme Series RX850-S-B 850W Continuous @40°C ,80 PLUS Certified, ATX12V v2.2 & EPS12V v2.91, SLI Ready CrossFire Ready, Active PFC "Compatible with Core i7, i5" Power Supply
Pros: Nice size to price ratio. Looked pretty sleek when I unboxed it finally.
Cons: It took me almost six months to get the rest of the computer and when I finally got everything and put it all together this one didn't work correctly. I had it in a simple setup with an AMD A10 6800K, asrock hudson board, and two harddrives. At first I thought the issue was a harddrive, but upon further testing found out that the one of the 12v rails inside of the PSU was not operating correctly. It would cause random shutdowns and at most times couldn't do a regular computer restart (had to completely turn off then back on to get screen to come up again. I've trouble shot everything including the video side of the CPU, everything pointed at this thing being the issue.
Other Thoughts: if you get one of these, be sure to get the replacement plan with it, I made the mistake of not getting any kind of warranty and now I'm stuck with an 850W paper weight. Not going to buy a Rosewill PSU again.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: sturdy, clean, stays pretty cool even OC'd, handles the overclock on the cpu side of the APU, most the board does what it says it does.
Cons: Continuous crashes when GPU overclock is done on the APU. USB 3.0 header does not work, even with updated drivers and a new USB 3.0 cable. Bios are not as friendly to work with as the ASUS boards, but are friendlier than MSI or GIGABYTE.
Other Thoughts: Was a good budget board at the time, but a waste of money now that the dolton boards are out.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very sturdy board, and very nice looking in my case (NZXT Source 210 Elite). The bios are pretty easy to work with.
Cons: The Fast boot profile of the bios doesn't want to work and not sure how to get it to work properly. Don't really need it cause my computer boots fast anyways, but it's still there.
