A few months ago we took a look at the Rosewill Tachyon 1000W power supply review. Many of our readers were shocked that a house brand power supply could perform so well. We have to admit that we were quite pleased with the results as well. House brands often come at a cheaper price than some of the name brands and if they offer the same features and performance as the name brands, there is no reason to spend the extra money.
Today we are taking a look at another power supply from Rosewill. This time around it is the Fortress 750W unit. It is the little brother to the Tachyon unit in that it while it doesn't feature modular cabling, it does provide up to 750W of 80 PLUS Platinum power. The Fortress doesn't come from the same OEM as the Tachyon and also features a longer warranty.
Let's dig into the unit and see if other options from Rosewill are just as good as we saw with the Tachyon.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Rosewill Fortress has a single 12V rail rated for 62.5A which equates to 100% of the available output of the unit. Both the 3.3V and 5V rails are rated for 20A each with a combined maximum output of 100W. The 5VSB rail is rated for 2.5A or 12.5W. Maximum combined output for the power supply is 750W.
As you can see from the list above, there are a few things missing from the feature summary. The one that really sticks out is the lack of Over Temperature Protection. Aside from that, things look exactly like we would hope for in a natively wired power supply. All wires are fully sleeved. The unit is rated for 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency and 100% continuous output at 50C.
Rosewill has an MSRP of $179.99 on the Fortress 750W and that sounds quite a bit high for a 750W unit until you take into consideration that the power supply has a current price of $129.99. Even though Rosewill is the in-house name for Newegg, it would appear that they are starting to branch out beyond Newegg. We found the Fortress 750W for sale on Amazon for $109.99. At a price that low, you're talking about the possibility of some serious power at a very low price. Sweetening the deal even further is that the Fortress 750W power supply is backed by a seven year warranty.
