The 600W Glacier Series is one percent off from silver - I imagine the 850W one is as well.

Rosewill...? Some of the reviews claim that the cables are weird and they have had multiple failures. One review rated 5 eggs but complained about it falling. Not sure how much to trust some of them.

Tier 5 - budget option (of 7 total tiers)

"From here onwards, we're afraid to say it's vertiginously downhill. Tier 5 is where the budget options sit, and the chances are if you are a PC gaming connaisseur, these units will send shivers down your spine.

For the ordinary mortals among us who want to pour our precious cash into a better GPU or CPU, then these units are somewhat of a boon."

No, just that you should only buy them if your budget requires it. The last sentence implies that if you can either upgrade your CPU/GPU or get a PSU better than this, go for the CPU/GPU upgrade.

It's only OK if you have a computer rig that needs at most 850 watts of power and you don't keep this computer running too often. It's really dependent on what type of rig you have. Most gaming computers can get by with 500 watts. You'll generally need 850 watts if you're running multiple graphic cards, lights, cooling, overclocking, etc.

Also, similar to another comment about the grade being silver, I agree. If you plan on keeping the computer running a lot (like leaving it on overnight, which I highly recommend against doing), you're better off spending a little more on a gold, plat or titanium rated power supply, it'll pay itself back over time through electricity costs (these power supply grades are just a certified measure of energy efficiency).

About the brand, Rosewill is OK. I don't hear anything too bad about their power supplies but nothing good either. I've personally used Rosewill once and it was DOA, so I just returned it.

tl;dr - pass. If you want to save money go with a non-modular/semi-modular better name brand. Preferably Gold or Silver rated. No higher. And less watts?

Go by California standards at least... Which I think is gold rated? I don't remember, I don't live there.

But I wouldn't buy bronze and I wouldn't buy better than gold.

As for the brand, they are known for cheap things? Not something you want associated with a psu... BUT I'm not saying it's not a good solid product.

And for the Watts. I generally add 100W to whatever pcpartp* tells me after I add all my parts. But recently heard that PSU are most efficient at 50% use? Uh.. so maybe double what pcpp says? Idk... Feels Overkill... But I have a 750W Gold and it's Overkill for my 1070
*icker (idk how SD handles name drops.. I know links are removed but names? Let me know)

Another perspective I agree with is that turning your pc off every night is worse for the longevity of your computer. More frequent heating and cooling cycles are harder on parts than continuous warm (idle) and higher (load) temps. My 2/c anyway

Good point, I don't disagree - just depends on your preference I suppose. I don't think it's worth paying that much in electricity when I'm not getting anything in return.
