We would like to thank Rosewill for supplying the review sample.
Rosewill has many high-performance PSUs in their portfolio, and we had the chance to review some of them in the past. Their budget Platinum series is called Fortress and currently consists of four members with capacities ranging from 450 W to 750 W. In this review, we will evaluate the strongest Fortress unit, which isn't only affordable, but also features a single +12V rail and a non-modular cabling design, to provide you with a lower price. Rosewill even speaks of up to 94% efficiency and claims the same unit to offer very good performance under even tough conditions since it can deliver its full power continuously at up to 50°C. We already tested the Fortress-550
, and it left a very good impression on us, so we expect its 750 W sibling to perform equally well.
The Fortress-750, like every modern unit, exploits DC-DC converters to generate the minor rails and supports the C6 and C7 low-power states Intel's Haswell CPUs introduced. Although it doesn't feature a semi-passive operation, it is silent enough while operating normally because of its silent fan, and another crucial feature of all Fortress units is the incredibly long warranty Rosewill provides with them. Seven years will leave you worry-free as it is also indicative of generally high reliability. The only compromise are the non-modular cables; however, since the Fortress-750 doesn't have as many cables, it won't be a very tough burden to bear in its particular case.
