Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W Continuous @40°C,80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: For the price, it had an exceptionally good power output.
Mesh sleeve on cables

Cons: Purchased March of 2011 and it failed May 2014.

Other Thoughts: This unit powered my computer almost constantly for just over 3 years. The first two years it served as my main PC that I would game on, watch movies, played around with overclocking and all the typical stuff. Then this last year it was converted to a surveillance unit and would sit recording surveillance footage until the PS failed.

I still have power supplies from 8 or so years ago that ran for 4-5 years almost continuously and are still running strong. So a 3 year life span has me wary of going with this product again.

Rosewill Green Series RG630-S12 630W Continuous @40°C,80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Single 12V Rail, Active PFC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Has been a very reliable power supply for just over two years now. At the price I paid ($59), I can say I am very satisfied with what I got. Not only is it 80 Plus Bronze certified but a generous 630 watts of continuous power (peak of 730W for 60 sec.).

Has run my PC flawlessly and would probably get another one if I didn't need more power in my next PC build. This will continue it's life in this PC as my HTPC though, and I expect I'll get many more years out of it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: AMD Quad Core clocked at 3.0Ghz
16GB ram

PC has remained powered on 24/7 for just about it's entire life.

XIGMATEK HDT-S1284F 120mm HYPRO Bearing CPU Cooler

This review is from: XIGMATEK HDT-S1284F 120mm HYPRO Bearing CPU Cooler

Pros: I picked this CPU cooler because it was priced very reasonably and looked like it would work fairly well. Now two years later, I can say it has worked great.

Ran this with my AMD Phenom II unlocked to 4 cores and overclocked to 3.8ghz at times. I have never once reached a temperature that was anything I would worry about. In fact, it kept my CPU close to temps that are seen during normal use.

Cons: No real cons that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I am not a hardcore overclocker, but these are the conditions I have noticed while gaming with games that are very CPU intensive (such as GTA IV) for at least an hour at a time.

I have done a few benchmark tools that run the CPU at 100%, but that was more to see how stable my system was when I first got it, so only performed a few times long ago. CPU remained well within tolerable temps during those runs though, so I would expect it would do the same if I were to try it again.
