Default Spire SP-ATX-600W Power Supply

If you look around you'll find that there are more brands of power supplies than you can shake a stick at. Some of them are really good while others aren't even worth being hit with the aforementioned stick. Does the Spire Rocketeer IVSP-ATX-600W fall into the first or second category? Read on and decide for yourself.

This was an excellent review. I'm a better person for reading it. Great pictures. Testing results were awesome. Now I know why Techgage is on my quicklinks.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. Other than the smell of the unit at higher loads I really enjoyed it myself. It's the first one I've had that's performed so badly.
