CES 2013: Get powered up with Rosewill


Just a few weeks before CES 2013, I had the misfortune of watching a dear companion pass away, living an arduous life filled with difficult operations and dedication, it persevered with willpower like no other. My 950 Extreme Power Supply burned out. Since I purchased the PSU in early 2009 and have been putting quite a bit of strain on it, it’s easy to see why one would have a short-lived lifespan. Even with this, Rosewill has assured us that since then, they have made great advancements in not only power supply units, but have also stepped up to boldly encompass themselves in not only the gaming but also in the PC building enthusiast worlds.
With the flagship Thor V2 being so highly praised and successful, Rosewill has just launched the new Throne series full tower cases. Available in both a stunning black (red LED) and white (blue LED) finish, it’s one of the best looking cases we have seen on the market.
