[Power Supply] Rosewill Capstone-G 550

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Semi-Modular.  Definitely a boon for building and cable management.  I would never go non-modular.  While full-modular would've been perfect, especially with custom cables, all of that is money I'd rather spend on other parts of my setup.

 

550 watts.  It's plenty.  As I've said before, high wattage is overrated.  550 is enough for even a 1080 Ti and video cards will never get hungrier than that.

 

Build Quality.  A little bit on the cheap side, but it's not a problem.  It functions well.

 

Reliability.  I waited 7 months to write this review.  So far, it's going quite well.  No issues whatsoever.

 

Noise.  It ranges from quiet to slightly noisy depending on load.  The noise won't be a problem for most PC's; it's still more quiet than many others out there.  In my build that focuses on silence, it is the loudest part at full load, but that doesn't say a lot.  The most dedicated silent-heads will want another PSU, but most other enthusiasts won't find issue with this power supply.

 

Fan Modding.  It uses a non-stand 2-pin fan.  I originally gave it a 140mm fan that was hooked up to my motherboard to try to reduce the noise.  It worked well for a few months with no problems, but ultimately I decided to just put its original fan back in.    I would assume there are bett designed 2-pin fans that would work with it.

 

Good PSU for the money.

Good point.  I would take a pure guess and say the 15-27 db range is where it's at.  

 

assuming: 0-15 db is silent.  15-20 db is very quiet.  20-25 db is quiet.  25-30 db a little noisy.  30+ db noisy.
