That is in rare cases, that is definetly not a common problem.
you know there are plenty of PCs out there running PSUs that are Generic Case powersupplies, Usually when they have had their last breath they dont take any of the PCs components with them.

anyway My CPU will be upgraded in years to come.

Dude, Thats a rule of thumb in the PC world, Most people Get a powersupply that will easily handle the systems power requirements. Thats why i didnt get a 300 Watt powersupply, I got a 550 Watt so my PSU wasnt *stressed* from my systems power requirements.

Why do server grade psu users only stick with server grade psus? It's because the powersupplies are known to supply their components with clean power. You can believe what you want, but investing in a good powersupply will save you so much more money in the long run.
Why are you telling me this when i already said this.

So why are you driving a Honda, instead of a Ferrari?

Why do I drive a Honda instead of a Ferrari? Maybe since Hondas are known to be a little more reliable? Why do you get a server grade psu instead of a crappy one? Reliability. So there you go. I don't see why people would buy a new computer and get a piss poor powersupply to go with it. Why don't you downgrade some parts to buy a decent powersupply? The powersupply is the first part of my build that I choose first then everything else. Anyway have fun with those Fuhjyyu caps in your powersupply

I wasnt talking about Reliability, i was talking about performance.

Lets rephrase that, Why do you drive a PONTIAC instead of a LEXUS.

MONEY


(With the Lexus you are paying for both reliability and performance)

Do you have Redundant powersupplies? I hope so, otherwise you may be slacking in the reliability departments,

You should also have a seperate UPS for each one.

not to mention an Inline generator, incase your powergoes down.

Rosewill is decent at best. I used them before. Build quality isn't that great and even if it does work, I would rather invest more into a PSU will quality components. Then again, it's not as bad as that Powmax PSU that blew on me the moment I turned on the computer.
