The Rosewill Hive is, pretty meh.

Are you referring to the Capstone G or just Capstone.

The Capstone G replaced the Capstone. A little confusing, I know.

Good Great alternatives are the EVGA G2, and the Corsair RMx. There are also more budget friendly options such as the EVGA B2, and all XFX units.

okey, but i am talking about the 1000 w version not the 650 w u referred to in the second link. About the 1st link, that review isnt that bad is it? It just states there is a better version for only 10 bucks more, only we are now in a different situation, the hive is atm not 10 bucks cheaper but 60 bucks cheaper because of the deal :P

Ahh. My bad. I thought they were the same platform, but I checked and they aren't.

It's pretty bad.

he hive is atm not 10 bucks cheaper but 60 bucks cheaper because of the deal :P

Do you have a link?

It just states there is a better version for only 10 bucks more

Prices change over time.

Your build also isn't going to need 1000w. 1000w is complete overkill even for dual 980ti's.

If you plan on adding another 980ti later on, get the EVGA B2 750. It is a great power supply. It is currently out of stock on Amazon though.

While the deal for the Hive may seem like a good deal, it really isn't. You are better off paying more for something better.

this is the link, its currently on sale on newegg : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182315

but you are probably right, i shouldnt let them trick me in to buying something i dont actually need by giving price reductions. (the thing i DO need even not on sale probably ends up cheaper :P).

It only has a 3yr warranty too.

Sometimes looking at the warranty is a good way of determining if a unit is good or not.

Not all the time though, so don't use it as a crutch.

Don't buy the Hive. Not very good PSUs.

Don't buy it, if you actually needed 1000 watts you would want a much better unit and for a high end build, you should get a high end psu. I would recommend getting a Evga 850 watt Evga G2, 10 year warranty with enough power to run two GTX 980 Ti's and have everything overclocked and it has a 10 year warranty.
