RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-630SS 630W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Cheap
Did it's job for a year
Was quiet when it worked
No real power fluctuations
Plenty of cords that were threaded for stability and cooling efficiency
Nice blue glow

Cons: Fan started dying in under a year
Raidmax brand name

Other Thoughts: Raidmax has had a very iffy reputation for ill power supplies. They tend to be competitive in their pricing, but their quality seems to lack because of it. I purchased it against my better judgement, and the yar I owned their power supply, it worked fantastically. Until the fan starting clinking against the internal heatsink. Would do this off and on. Eventually, the fan got to the point where it would rattle and smash against the metal pieces, creating a horrible ruckus. Had to turn off my computer and leave it off for a weekend to ensure it didn't destroy anything in the process.

I've purchased another Raidmax PSU in hopes that I just got a clunker from the bin. If this one dies on me as well, I can kiss Raidmax good bye. I'll be sticking to Corsair.

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It was stupid cheap. Got it on sale for 60 bucks. It has decent 4K read and write speeds which is essential for fast file access which deals with booting, shutting down and other operations.

Cons: COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE PERFORMANCE. I CANNOT explain how furious I am with this. Kingston has ALWAYS had above excellent quality and performance. I was always reaching for their flash memory, storage and the such. They were the first to come out of my mouth when I worked retail at sellers. However, this... This is outrageous. I am beyond infuriated with how shady and low cut this was.

I'm not going to rant, but this doesn't even deserve one egg. Stay away from this product. It is no longer worth the price you pay.

Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2SB - 500-Watt ATX12V v2.2 Power Supply

3 out of 5 eggs Weak 12v rails lead to it's death 03/14/2014

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2SB - 500-Watt ATX12V v2.2 Power Supply

Pros: I got it on a sale and it looked pretty. Powered my system for as long as it was alive.

Cons: Worked for a few months then died a smoky death. The 12v rails are rated at a low amperage. I didn't know what rails were when I bought this. Had I known, I would have stayed away. Also, if you're gonna overclock, expect to not have this PSU for very long. However, it's fine to make a basic PC looks pretty.

Other Thoughts: A combined 31 amperage isn't much especially considering most CPU's also draw from the 12v rail now and can go up to nearly 200 watts if I understand correctly. Along with a GPU that's already drawing nearly 250 from a single v rail, it can quickly overdraw what it takes leading to a short life span.
