I picked this up on newegg as part of a case/psu combo without doing much research. It installed fine and is running fine, but yesterday I was bored and read the reviews of the PSU. They don't look great. Several people said that not only did the power supply die after a short period of use, but it also damaged their motherboard in the process.
Now, I know very little about PSUs, this is actually the first 'nice' psu I've purchased. I usually just use whatever is cheap/comes preinstalled in a case. I've had 3 cheap PSUs die on me in the past, and nothing happened to any of the other components, so I guess my question is:
Am I taking a big risk by continuing to use this Rosewill PSU? If the PSU does die, is it likely to cause damage to other components?
i wouldnt worry about it as both as stated, but if u upgrade to a stronger cpu videocard, u might want to consider a better ps from seasonic or corsair, or xfx, since u can get a 80+silver rated powersupply for under 140$ from these companies
