This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-650 Continuous 650W@40°C Power Supply
Pros: Modular, Bronze certified, and runs quietly, all for a great price.
Cons: Some minor issues. Particularly that the 4/8 pin connector could not be properly merged (that is, the two four pin connectors could not be merged to make a well-fitted eight pin connector). I managed to get around that issue, but the added tension on the power connector makes me somewhat nervous.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Gorgeous, easy to use, quiet as a mouse, loaded with features, great price (and I got it on sale, too!) and the assembly was easy as pie... mostly...
Cons: ...up until you're dealing with those pesky cables. And the case is nice and feature rich, which means there are LOTS of cables you'll have to route. The guys before me did not lie. It is a cerebral task to fit all those cables behind the backplate and still be able to attach the side panel comfortably. But if you approach cable management as an opportunity to express your creativity, rather than a measure of overall build quality, you'll sure have fun with this case!
Other Thoughts: If it weren't for that one glaring design flaw, this case would be easily comparable to the $150+ cases. But it is a challenge to overcome, so I would likely buy a different case with similar features for a bit more cash in order to save myself some effort next time.READ FULL REVIEW
