With the economy in its present state, it is perhaps more important than ever to find value for our hard-earned money. Whether it’s a fastest CPU on the market or the beefiest graphics card, there is a need to power these components, and a good and stable power supply is critical to system health and component longevity.
So the challenge, then, is to find a unit that can provide that stable power without leaving us in the poorhouse. And that can be a challenge at times.
Closer look of Rosewill Xtreme 850W
Today I’m looking at the Rosewill Xtreme 850W power supply, a unit that comes with enough horsepower for a hungry SLI/Crossfire setup, but with a price tag that won’t break the bank. It’s got some flash with a pair of blue LED fans, and it promises good performance at a good price. Sounds like a plan to us. Let’s take a look and see if the Rosewill Xtreme 850W can live up to those claims.

The Xtreme 850W is packaged in a rather sleek black box, complete with a single red accent of its namesake, which looks to mimic Rosewill’s corporate colors. Inside the box, the components are packaged reasonably snugly and arrived without any damage.
Included are a power cord and screws, and nothing else. It’s definitely a very sparse package, perhaps reflecting a more affordable price tag for the unit that Rosewill is pursuing. The Xtreme 850W can be found online at Newegg for $100, and it’s one of the least expensive power supplies you can find on the market for units in this power range but you may go with other options like Thermaltake Toughpower XT power supply.
The Rosewill Xtreme 850W Power Supply Unit (PSU) is generally considered a reliable and affordable option for PC builds. It offers excellent performance and stable voltage outputs, making it suitable for use on high-end gaming PCs and other demanding systems. However, some users have reported issues with build quality and noise levels, so it’s important to weigh these factors when making your decision. Overall, the Rosewill Xtreme 850W is a solid option for those looking for a decent power supply at an affordable price.
