    5Silent Power Delivery
    By TonyR
    Great PSU so far. I bought this to replace a cheap power supply that was on my desktop. The older PSU made a lot of noise which was very annoying to me especially when using it at night. The Rosewill PSU is super quiet. I never hear it even at 3AM when everything is dead silent. The modular cables are great for reducing clutter. However, I do think that the cables are a bit too stiff and can be a bit difficult maneuvering them around the appropriate spot. It's a fantastic product and I really recommend for any build.

    5Best Bang for Buck
    By Oliver Hitchcock
    Great PSU! For 650 watts and 80+ Bronze efficiency this thing has got to be the best value. Plus its modular (other than the 20+4 pin and 8 pin cables) which is great and keeps things tidy. The cables are very nice, they are plain black with no sleeving which looks really good (saved me a lengthy re-sleeving project). Its got a single 12v rail that can supply 46 amps which is enough for about any modern graphics card (probably shouldnt plan on doing SLI or Crossfire though). Fans very quite. Cables are long enough although the length almost became an issue, but thats mainly because I have a huge case (Thor v2) so you will most likely have plenty of room. Havent had any technical issues with it so far.

    Overall very solid purchase, would highly recomend.

    5Great Value for 80-plus Bronze
    By Amazon Customer
    ***BOTTOM LINE*** - For a semi-modular 80-plus bronze, I don't think anyone beat the value of the Hive series. It is quiet and efficient, and the modular nature of the supply as well as the flat cables make cable management a breeze. I would highly recommend this PSU.

    Pros
    -Semi-modular. Use only the cables you need and avoid clutter.
    -80-plus bronze. In my research before buying a PSU, 80-plus bronze seems to be the sweet spot where you get the most bang for your buck (or at least I did with my personal application). As you climb the 80-plus rankings, efficiency goes up, but cost goes up even more. Lower than 80-plus bronze, wasted power could cost you more money in the long run than upgrading the PSU to a more efficient unit.
    -Very quiet, as in I can't even tell it's there. Unless you have an otherwise silent rig, there is no way you will hear this PSU over your other components.

    Cons
    -The cables, while having a very handy flat form factor, are a little stiff for my taste.
    -SLI/Crossfire is probably not happening with this unit. Only 2x 6+2 PCI pins. I don't think there would be a problem with linking up two GPUs that only require one 6+2 connector, but I would venture to guess that most people interested in running a dual GPU setup are running power hungry cards. Overall, if you want to run dual GPUs, I wouldn't recommend this PSU.
