The newer Rosewill units, like the HIVE are made by a good OEM and are of decent quality.
Therefore, the HIVE is a good, budget modular PSU, and is the one I purchased.
Certain Rosewill series (the Stallion, Green) are very low quality and early on that was all Rosewill had.
Added to this fact is that Rosewill is Newegg in disguise. Being a budget brand hasn't helped their reputation either, so they dont have a great image among the tech community.
Obviously there are better PSUs out there. There are vast differences in quality and price of course and a higher end enthusiasts PSU can cost a few hundred dollars.
I'm looking for good quality at a more reasonable price and this is where the Hive series comes into play.
I've been looking at PSU's and was wondering if anyone had any experience with this PSU.
Is it good for the price? Should I forget about it?
I'm looking for a modular PSU in the sub $90 range with ≥650 watts.
I'm a college student & first time builder, so I'm not looking for anything ridiculous, just quality.
