Rosewill Tachyon 650W Power Supply Review

Unboxing the Tachyon 650W

The box

We received the 650W version of the Tachyon in a typical cardboard box. Inside the box the power supply is well packed and protected by polyethylene foam pieces. The artwork is relatively simple and serious, with Rosewill obviously trying to create a professional look.

The box (rear)

The rear of the box holds the list of features, the number of connectors and the electrical specifications of all four models of the Tachyon series, not only of the 650W version which is inside the box.

Bundled items

Rosewill usually keeps their bundles down to a minimum, even with their high end products. With the Tachyon the company also provides a set of four black thumbscrews and a few cable ties alongside with the standard A/C cable and 3M mounting screws, which are a welcome addition, yet we would like to see at least a few cable straps provided with such a high-end product.

 Modular cables

As this is a semi-modular design, Rosewill provides the modular cables inside a small nylon bag. The cables are pretty standard, using color-coded wires and black sleeving. This power supply offers the following number of connectors:

Native cables

One 20+4pin ATX

One 4+4 pin ATX12V/EPS12V

Two PCI-E 6+2 pin

Modular cables

Two PCI-E 6+2 pin

Eight SATA connectors

Eight Molex connectors

One Floppy connector
