Rosewill Glacier-500M compatibility review

The Rosewill Glacier-500M power supply has a maximum wattage output of 500W. This is a mid-range capacity, and should be fine as long as it is part of an equally mid-range system build. Always make sure that a purchased PSU is capable of powering your system. Remember that a higher PSU capacity does not necessarily equate to a higher wattage output and a more expensive electricity bill. In fact, you may find that a higher capacity PSU will function more efficiently than a lower capacity PSU because it is dealing with a lower percentage of its maximum load - that is, it is not being stressed to the same extent.

The Rosewill Glacier-500M has an 80 Plus rating of Bronze. This means the PSU operates at average efficiency levels of at least 82%, 85%, and 82% for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20% respectively. Bronze is the fourth-best 80 Plus certificate available, and as such the Rosewill Glacier-500M is very efficient and is a decent PSU choice. The actual efficiencies for this PSU are 82.89%, 86.06%, and 84.66%, for loads of 100%, 50%, and 20%.

The dimensions of the Rosewill Glacier-500M (LxWxH) are 30.4cm x 21.4cm x 10.2cm. Make sure to compare these measurements against the case you desire if planning on using it in a build.

The Rosewill Glacier-500M is modular, meaning that cables can be taken out and connected back in as necessary. This can make cable management much easier, leading to a less chaotic build, and better airflow.

The Rosewill Glacier-500M is designed for low volumes, meaning that its constant drone while your PC is on would be less noticeable - ideal for those that prefer silent environments.
