With the ever increasing power demands of modern CPU's, GPU's and computers in general, 1000 watt power supplies are becoming more readily available outside of the big names and leading manufacturers. Rosewill offers quite the selection of power supplies, ranging from 300W to 1000W that will fill just about whatever void you are looking for. Today we are taking a look at the RGD1000 from Rosewill and we'll find out if it is worthy of your hard earned money.
The RGD1000 offers quite bit of power for your system and looks quite impressive on paper. It promises 1000W of continuous power with a 50C rating to keep your system running during those long and hot gaming sessions. It also offers six PCI-E connectors for those interested in running multi-GPU systems and a single 12V rail. The modular design lets you keep your case neat and tidy while allowing you to make sure that you have plenty of connections for whatever configuration you need.
These are just some of the highlights that Rosewill's RGD1000 has to offer, but the important question to ask is if it can deliver quality power to keep your rig going when you need it most.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The RGD1000 gives you a single 12V rail to power various components, which should be ample for just about any system out there. The single rail design frees you from having to load balance the system and simplifies installation.
Newegg lists the RGD1000 for $179.99 with a 3-year warranty, which puts it in the same price bracket as ThermalTake, SilverStone, Antec and others. While it is in stock and available, Rosewill is only available at Newegg in the USA. This isn't a huge issue so long as the RGD1000 is kept in stock, but can quickly become an issue when it goes on backorder.
Rosewill gives you absolutely everything you can ask for concerning features, including the 50C rating, Active PFC and Over-Temperature Protection.
