Meet the Series
This is the second time we got power supplies from Rosewill. They gave us their best current series with 80Plus Gold and a robust looking case. While the 450W model comes without any modular plugs the 650W is a semi-modular version. Today we will test both to find out which one is the best solution.
Many people are happy with a decent computer that will handle their everyday tasks—nothing fancy, not too expensive, but just a good all-around build. Then there are the enthusiasts that we often hear from in our comments, looking for not just good but great components. Whether we're talking HTPCs, CPUs, GPUs, laptops, SSDs, etc. there are people out there that want the "best". With the Capstone series Rosewill wants to meet those requirements.

MeanBruce - Saturday, March 24, 2012 - linkWow, I started reading some comments, and gee all this discussion however constructive, seems so many better things to do, especially on a Saturday! Make it simple on yourself, purchase a Corsair AX850 or one of the upcoming Corsair platinums and never read another PSU review for the entire 7year warranty, life is way too short if you ask me!;)
zootjeff - Thursday, June 21, 2012 - linkAny ideas how well these work without minimum load? Many of us tinkers and hackers like to use ATX power supplies for other things. Like a 12V power supply with 5VSB. In my application I'm looking for a 80 Plus Gold where I just draw 100mA to 20 amps of 12v and Zero 3.3 and 5v.. How well regulated is the 12v with no load on the 3.3 and 5?
