This review is from: Rosewill CAPSTONE-750-M – 750-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply – Continuous @ 122 Deg. F (50C), 80PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire Ready
Pros: manufactured by superflower
gold rated at 50C
fan changes its speed based of temperature
1,200rpm 140mm fan manufactured by global fan
excellent voltage, ripple, stability, and strength
strong 62amp single 12v rail
meshed covered cables
the mesh is loose enough to allow for easy flexing of the cables but tight enough to protect and prevent pinching of the wires
affordable yet high quality
silicon covered ports
it uses all high quality japanese capacitors manufactured by nippon chemi-con.
it has a nice matte, black finish.
it doesn't have any logos or graphics on the sides.
the cables are of adequate length for any mid size and lower atx case. i personally have a cooler master haf xb evo and had no cable length issues what-so-ever.
lacks gimmicky features like "corsair link" and "echo mode"
Cons: it comes with two cpu power cables, but the second extra one is built in which is kinda annoying since it will go unused.
not a con at all with having the motherboard and cpu power cable built in since, you know, they have to be used, but the second extra cpu power cable should be modular.
cable length might be an issue for those rocking full size atx tower cases.
Other Thoughts: i purchased (from another major online retailer with free prime shipping) this unit (750-m capstone) after i read a few reviews from jonnyguru and techpowerup that reviewed this psu. they praised it highly and recommended it and finding out who its actually manufactured by it had me sold.
don't let a house brand fool you. even though rosewill is newegg's brand, this unit is not produced by newegg. rather, like corsair, evga, antec, cooler master, and such, its outsourced to a third party oem. this particular unit, and the entire capstone series, both modular and non, is manufactured by superflower. superflower is a top tier power supply manufacturer that produces some of the best power supplies you can get. you will find many of their units housed in brands such as antec, evga, pc power and cooling ,and the like.
its cheap not because of its quality, but rather because its a rebranded oem. it's quality is superb and equivalent in what you will find in more expensive units. since rosewill out sources it to a oem they are able to sell them at a cheaper price and they pass the savings onto us. the oem saves money because they get a fixed number of units they have to produce, don't have to worry about producing to many, don't have the worry about the packaging, customer support, warranty, and distribution. rosewill saves money because they don't have to worry about manufacturing and research and development. other companies like corsair and evga do the same exact thing as rosewill, except they don't pass on the savings and charge the same premium as if you purchased it by the oem manufacturer themselves.
coming over from a corsair ax850 to this I'm extremely impressed and pleased. I'm actually am more impressed with it than what I was with my corsair. it's is one of the best I have ever owned. I will definitely will look at rosewill again for my next psu purchase and highly recommend the capstone series to anyone looking for a rock solid psu.
This review is from: Evercool EC-DF002 11.81" Supports 3 PWM Fans From Single PWM Header
Pros: 4 pin pwm splitter with molex adapter
three pwm connectors
allows you to connect fans that draw more power than what your motherboard can provide
molex pins didn't come bent all over the place. was able to connect my psu molex cable right in with ease.
Cons: its not sleeved so it stands out if you have all black sleeved cables.
Other Thoughts: bought this two connect two scythe grand flex 2400rpm pwm fans in a push/pull on my d14 and a enermax white led vegas pwm fan for exhaust. having my motherboard control them all is fantastic.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RFG-080 - 80mm Fan Grill / Guard
Pros: its a 80mm fan grill
it wasn't bent
the grill leaves enough gap between each other to allow for good air intake / flow but close enough to prevent your fingers or cables from getting inside
it's elevated high enough to not rub against the fans motor or blades
Other Thoughts: it's a great, cheap fan grill. excellent build quality.READ FULL REVIEW
