How much wattage would this build require?

Also, how much watts do case fans/LED use? This is first time buying a case with case fans, do I always leave them on if i'm just browsing the internet?

More about wattage build require
  1. You will be fine with the PSU you selected there. Nice selection, overall, too.

    Case fans barely draw any power, and yes, leave them on permanently or control them with a fan controller, your choice!
  2. Wouldn't do the rosewill go with a better power supply like a corsair seasonic antec and so on.
  3. Consensus is the Rosewill Hive is a very good PSU, with a 3 year warranty. And that is a pretty good price for a solid PSU.

    EDIT: 3 year warranty, as opposed to the 5 year warranty on the Rosewill CAPSTONE PSUs.

    Where did you pull the 5 Years out of?

    On the Newegg web page for the Rosewill HIVE-650 it says the warranty is 3 Years. On Rosewill's own web page it states that the warranty is 3-year One-to-One Replacement.

    Thanks for the correction. I was thinking of their CAPSTONE line.

    That said, the HIVE-650 is still a solid PSU.

  6. I've heard good things about that PSU as well. Hardware secrets gave it an award and they are usually very hard to impress. And for that price? Such a good deal.
  7. Best answer
    If you compare it to a Seasonic M12II Bronze 650W or even a Rosewill Capstone Series 650W, the HIVE-650's +12V rail is much weaker.

    The +12V rail is the most important output rail in a modern PSU.
  8. Personally, I'd choose Seasonic any day, but I appreciate a PSU's quality and am ready to pay for it.

    Seasonic PSUs are better, hands down, but the Rosewill HIVE-650 is a solid buy at that price, in my humble opinion. If the OP had suggested a shady PSU, it would be a different story.
  9. I agree thank you I don't think the rosewill is bad but I am thinking long term as well.

    NZXT 140mm 9 Blade Rifle Bearing Fan 1300 RPM
    • Current: 0.24 Amps
    • Input: 2.88 Watts

    NZXT 120mm 9 Blade Rifle Bearing Fan 1300 RPM
    • Current: 0.16 Amps
    • Input: 1.92 Watts

    NZXT 140mm LED Fan
    • Current: 0.21 Amps (0.30 Amps max.)
    • Input: 2.52 Watts (3.60 Watts max.)

    NZXT 120mm LED Fan
    • Current: 0.21 Amps (0.30 Amps max.)
    • Input: 2.52 Watts (3.60 Watts max.)

    A single LED light consumes no more than 30–64 milliwatts (mW). They typically draw 20 mA at between 1.5V - 3.2V depending on the specific LED.

    As you can see these are low to extremely low power devices.
