Rosewill ARC-750 ARC Series 750W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Single +12V Rail Intel 4th Gen CPU SLI and CrossFire Ready Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good value for an 80 plus bronze power supply. Lived up to claim and reduced power from wall over non 80 plus power supply. Handled OC'd FX-8350 4.67Ghz on MSI 980a Mobo, Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo and GTX 760, and 5 WD RE Drives. No issues with heat or power fluctuation.

Cons: Died just over a year, no warnings, no power fluctuations, just dead. Not entirely sure what happened but something blew from the inside and broke a fan blade. On warranty claim, I checked Rosewill's website and it stated I would need to return the power supply and accessories (power cord). After waiting over a month expecting my replacement power supply, I instead got my original dead one with a notice saying it wasn't covered because I didn't have the box. I checked the website again and it said the same as when I had placed my rma claim, so I called them. After a bit of haggling, they did offer to replace it after shipping it a second time. I just checked the website today and it says all packaging must be original etc. I have 7 computers in my house, and keeping every box from every rosewill part is just not practical. So a 3 year warranty on Rosewill power supplies is only as good as the original condition of the box. Seems pretty silly. It is a major disappointment to me because I have not only purchased Rosewill Stallions, Hives, Fortresses and ARC's for myself, but for others like my family and friends. I can tell you I didn't keep the boxes for any of them either, so it's OUT of LUCK (abbreviation got flagged) for my loved ones. These changes to the website seem to be this year, but I am not certain. Also keep in mind, if the Rosewill power supplies have a rebate that requires the original UPC and Serial, it will VOID your warranty as you will not have an ORIGINAL box. The information was what I got from the Customer Service Rep. regarding the packaging. So no rebate if you want to keep the warranty.

Other Thoughts: To be completely honest this is the first power supply from Rosewill I think I have even had to RMA, all the others, including the Stallions, outlived their warranty. I have kids who love gaming and family who is more PC than Console so my computers per household is higher than average I think. But even still, if the power supply still has it's serial number and model number and my Invoice has the same info, I don't understand why I have to keep the original box.

5 out of 5 eggs Good Motherboard for the Money 07/19/2015

This review is from: MSI A78M-E45 V2 FM2+ AMD A78 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Great board for the money. Lots of USB 3.0 and internal header for 3.0. Heatsinked VRM's. PS/2 Ports for Older Microsoft Split Ergonomic Keyboard a definite plus. Pretty much one of everything on a small board. No trouble with A10-5800k and Gskill 2133 Ram at all.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I put this in a Cougar Spike case with a Rosewill Hive 550 Watt power supply and 16Gb DDR3-2133 Gskill ram and WD 500Gb RE4, A10-5800K, and MSI Geforce 650Ti. Not bad at all. Pretty nice little budget gamer rig. Also used a Coolermaster Hyper 212+ to keep things nice and cool.

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model 994124
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice black heat spreaders give an aggressive look. Timings are pretty good for 2133. Mushkin is U.S. based so that's a plus to buy here supporting companies in the US.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Had some issues with getting timings and speeds set at anything above 1600 on Asus Sabertooth R2.0. It didn't want to use the XMP profile properly with 2501 BIOS. After manual settings of both Voltage and Timings everything went smooth at 2133. Never had to RMA Mushkin ram so no experience or comments on service, but I don't mind paying a little more for ram from a company based here in the states.
