Most Critical Review

Died after 22 months

Rosewill LIGHTNING-800 - 800-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Deg. F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire Ready
Rosewill LIGHTNING-800 - 800-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Deg. F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire Ready

Pros: nice colors with the led fan semi-modular design helps with cable management stable voltages

Cons: died after 22 months of use and can't get replaced even though it came with a 5 year warranty cables were a little short for the case I was using so didn't look bad in case, but could have looked better

Overall Review: purchased because it looked cool, fit my power requirements and had a 5 year warranty, thought that meant 5 years of worry free use giving 2 eggs because that's how many years it lasted

don't waste your time
