  1. Hi, i have a Asus A8N-SLI Premium Mobo, I need a new powersupply and was wondering if will work with it. The motherboard power requirements read: ATX PowerSupply w/ 24pin and 4pin 12v plugs. ATX 12 V 2.0 compliant. Will this PSU work if its ATX 12 v 2.3?

    I would second hellokitty[hk]'s recommendations. Rosewill PSUs are to be avoided, especially if you can find other PSUs in the same price range.

    EDIT:However, that Rosewill seems to have pretty decent specs, and it's 80PLUS-certified. The OEM is not bad either. But I'll wait for a review of the unit before judging it.

    There are so many better power supplies than Rosewill, all around the same prices too

    LOL the one for the 630W Rosewill is hardly a PSU test. No ripple testing, no transient load testing, no testing of the DC power supplied from all the rails under different temperatures. There is not even a mention of crossloading protection.

    It is more like an advert for the product than a PSU test. The second one is quite thorough however and clearly states that the product cannot deliver all its rated wattage, even at 25C (which is impossible to have in a case unless you have some impressive cooling in place). So it is not really a 650W PSU and should not be rated as such. Also, build quality is below average, with a lot of glue on the primary cap and choke, with the primary cap being a Teapo, a less-than-stellar brand.
