    Arrow Rosewill Capstone G 1200W Review

    When last we saw Rosewill, they were turning heads with their Quark series of units. I tested one of those units, and it turned out to be rather good. Now, Rosewill's reinvigorating their Capstone line of units and calling them the Capstone G series. I have the 1200 watt version of these new units right in front of me now, and I'm going to check it out.

    That's a bit disappointing. It beat the old Capstone 1000W in voltage regulation, but it loses considerably in ripple suppression and component quality.

    The lower power, different-platform Capstones G 550W-750W still have a chance to truly impress.

    Silverstone Strider Gold S 1500 a year ago and the Coolermaster VSM750 about a year and a half ago were solid units

    Solid, but not really impressive/outstanding. That's the point. Stretching a little, this unit could also just sneak into "solid" bracket, but, again, stretching it.

    I remember a batch of Enhance built Silverstone units that came out pretty "impressive" - Or in Oklahomas own words: "Silverstone's latest 750 watt fully modular offering is nothing short of excellent."

    Ironic. Murphy's Law: you tighten the scope in, just as you hit a PSU where you could have seen the ripple at the old width.

    I would say the SFX Gold units were definitely impressive.
    Like wise, the Strider 1500w before that was definitely impressive.

    It has been a bit though.

    I thought that this Enhance line was impressive: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php...Story&reid=415 ( http://www.hardocp.com/article/2015/.../#.Vl1DUr97T9I )
    But after 6 months of use i'm certain that either this PSU or my UPS, was causing certain issues ( http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12820 ). I can't be 100% sure though which one to blame
