Rosewill Stallion Series RD450-2-SB - 450-Watt ATX V2.2 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Have used several since 2008 07/08/2014

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD450-2-SB - 450-Watt ATX V2.2 Power Supply

Pros: I've used this unit in multiple builds starting in 2008. I have never had one fail. I just recently sold the original unit I bought back in 2008 which was still 100% functional.

Cons: I would prefer a modular PSU for better cable management, but that's a minor gripe.

Other Thoughts: It's always important to have reliable PSU. If a PSU dies, sometimes it can take your entire build with it and if can destroy components attached to it. This unit is my go-to for mid-level builds (business/office/light-mid gaming). This card wont be powering multiple SLI/Crossfire cards or 8 hard drives in RAID, but it will cover most of your every needs.

Rosewill Stallion Series RD450-2-SB - 450-Watt ATX V2.2 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've used this PSU for every single one of my LGA775 board builds, from the upper-moderate performance to everyday home use. its a great reliable PSU. Cables a long enough to fit across larger cases and they are bundled to keep from wire clutters.

Cons: only 2 SATA power cables, but you can get an 4molex-SATA adapter if u need it.

Other Thoughts: i've built lots of computers now and i can say this is one of the best PSUs i've built with. Remember: DON'T cheap out to much on a PSU, because chances are if it goes out... it will take a few other components with it. However, this is a great PSU for the price

Intel Pentium 4 530 Prescott Single-Core 3.0GHz Socket 478 84W NE80546PG0801M Desktop Processor
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: A very nice 478 pin CPU unit. Just a step below the 775's. good for a family computer or someone building a light performance build for a PGA 478 MB. anyone looking at prescotts should also take a look at the northwoods.

Cons: very HOT. if you don't keep it properly cooled you could run into some overheating issues, i don't recommend overclocking it either.

Other Thoughts: Just keep it cool. make sure you do not let the heat sink/fan collect dust as it will hinder their ability to work. so dont cheap out on a HS/fan and clean out your comp every once and a while and you shouldn't have a problem. northwood run a little cooler than Prescott apparently, but i have not tested this out myself yet.
