Corsair cx600m 80 plus bronze Vs Rosewill Hive 650W 80 plus bronze

on newegg there are some pretty bad reviews witch seem pretty bad

 

Here's a post I had made regarding reviews you see on Newegg and such:

 

"Generally, PSUs reviews from sites like Newegg, Amazon, etc. aren't all that useful. Normally, they plug it in, and if it works, they either give it a positive review and sometime even over-glorified it or not post a review at all. And then people that do complain are usually a small number of people in comparison to the number of people who bought it.

 

DOAs can be explain by the handling of the shipping company from the time it left the manufacturing warehouse in China all the way until it finally reach your system. During the quality control everything ran fine, but due to possibly that the boxes that holds these units may have been drop numerous of times at Newegg's storage warehouse, shipping trucks, etc. something may got loose or even damage.

 

Then issues like PSUs failing in a few months time can be explain by certain quality control issues that have been overlooked (remember, they have to look at thousands of units. They are bound to overlook something eventually). For example, the robots didn't put enough solder on one of the joints. Even though, it did not have an immediate affect, over time, during heat/cool cycles, it may crack and fail. Or a batch of components are partially bad that didn't show any immediate signs of failure and is able to pass and slipped by QC test. It may take a few months or years for issues to manifest itself.

 

Of course, these issues can happen to any mass-produce electronics. Not just PSUs. If you want to get a good idea of how good a particular PSU is, it is best that you go review a competent, more professional review site. TBH, the understanding of the inner workings of a PSU of those reviewers (Newegg and such) are usually very little. Reviews sites such as HardwareSecrets, Jonnyguru, TechPowerUp, HardOCP, etc. are good."

 

Even some of the best build, server grade PSUs has some complaints on them; however, that does not mean it's a poorly design, flawed unit.

 

Anyways, here's a review of the PSU on Hardware Secrets: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Rosewill-HIVE-650-W-Power-Supply-Review/1460/1

It's most certainly better than the Thermaltake TR2-600 unit that you got which was an inefficient, outdated design, that didn't perform well electrically.

So this is my system

I'm having problems with my actual psu since i put the gtx 760 and hyper 212, wich is when i put the pc to 100% load or close it shut down after a time, but for example as well, i play bf3 at ultra settings it shut down after playing 30-20 mins, with fire strike benchmark it shut downs kinda fast (after 10 mins), but it happens still when i play bf3 at every detail at low, but it shut down after like several hours (3-4 hours)... when it shut downs it doesnt show an error or something it just shut down and im not capable of turning it on (the fans dont even start and the mobo aswell) but to turn it on i have to turn off the psu power button (the one on the next pucture) and turn it on again, then my pc starts normally.

so i concluded i have to change of power supply (if im wrong please tell me what could be a solution to this) if that is the case, wich power supply should i get? the rosewill hive 650w or the corsair cx600m? both are at the same price point in my country (114 dollars, yeah pretty damn expensive) so wich one should i choose? what do you recomend? i see pretty interesting the rosewill but i don't want it to fail, i want to get something that last at least the 3 years of warranty the rosewill supplies, thanks

The Rosewill Hive 650w is the better power supply due to independent regulation as opposed to group-regulation of the CX. As such I recommend the Rosewill between the two.

 

If you want us to provide you an alternative, it would be helpful to know your budget and where you are buying from.

Thanks :) that is the kind of response i was waiting for, i will go and buy the rosewill, i was really speculative about those kind of reviews i saw on newegg, even tho i have already read that review you posted from hardware secrets.

I will be more safe buying that psu

Thanks man!
