    That looks short for a 1000watt and modular PS.

    Before when I saw the "80plus" spec I used to think wow what a quality PS, but the last 3 PS's (OCZ,Seasonic)I got had that rating and died quickly, I would pass

    Brands are one of the most important factors when it comes to the quality of PC components.

    Are you sure its built by TopPower? If thats true someone wanting to power a rig with 2 cards that are mid high range and a i7 or core 2 quad, am3 am2+ quad setup would love this.

    Everyone is quick to shit on Rosewill, but I doubt many have even used them lately.

    I have a 450w that ran a 9600GSO and E2200, which was later upped to a E5200 that ran 24/7 Folding and Crunching no issues. Its still going to this day and before I had it Mike047 had it crunching 24/7 in his farm of 939 X2s.

    The 600w model I have now runs my Phenom 965 9600GSO folding and crunching 24/7 as well, no issues. Used to power my main rig in specs (WCG0) 24/7 as well, and before that Mike had it in his farm too.

    These newer ones are built very well and if they are surviving Folding and Crunching 24/7 (and numerous power outages too) they will surely survive any round of Crisis, CS:S, or whatever game everyone is playing now.

    /rant :D

    Looks = Looks, literally...

    The placement of the parts on the PSU and the heatsink design has TopPower design expertise all over it..

    Hmm, maybe my ePower 1050W that I bought a few weeks ago isn't TopPower then... :-\

    The UL number (which is not shown on the Newegg picture of the sticker, but is shown on Rosewill's website) is E307777, which doesn't seem to turn up any results. My Topower built Mushkin has a much different UL number. A forum on Google suggests that the UL points to an ABS/Newegg/Rosewill/Magnell brand PSU made by ATNG POWER CO., LTD. Use at your own risk.

    I've only had 1 Rosewill PSU, a 400w model from 2007 manufactured by Deer I believe, and I ran 2 9800 GTs and an undervolted/underclocked Phenom II X4 and it didn't pop.

    While I agree with Jstn7477, the JonnyGuru link is for a year old model. I have an 850W Rosewill Extreme 80+ that has seen a constant 725w load folding 24/7 for the last 6 months and I am very happy with the PSU. Also remember that Newegg stands behind every purchase, especially their name brand.

    That UL number is for ABS/Newegg/Rosewill/Magnell/etc.

    The unit is also an ATNG

    I have to disagree with this. Choosing by model rather than by brand, in my experience, tends to get better results. Brand loyalty is often a foolish thing that makes us miss out on some good components. Every brand has some winners and some junk. For example, I've used two Foxconn motherboards that were far superior to a handful of Asus boards I've used.
