    Raidmax Volcano 630 Watt Power Supply - Conclusion


    (Page 5 of 5 )

    Conclusion

    Since the Volcano lights up really nice, here are pictures of its lights on. This top picture is just looking at it from the side. It looks like the fans are the things that light up in the PSU, so the flame vent in the upper right is a bit dark in the picture because it doesnít have a fan nearby.

    That bottom picture is taken under the power supply, looking up at the bottom of the Volcano and top of the motherboard.

    Thereís not much more to say about the power supply. It is designed to look good. The cool looking flame vents and blue lights would go well in a window case. The modular design also helps make things look cleaner. The PSU is easy to install, and the molex connectors have very improved grips that are much better than normal ones. The Volcano also performs very well. The voltages shift very little, and it will keep your computer running stable.

    I found the Raidmax RX-630 ATX 12V for about $105 plus shipping. Other power supplies that are both modular and over 600 Watts are much pricier, in the $170-180 range. Most of them donít look half as good as the Volcano either, usually just bland metal boxes. This Raidmax delivers quality and looks awesome.

    As this is a review, we usually point out downsides. My gripes are all pretty insignificant. The thing that might irritate somebody is that I donít think Raidmax has offered other light colors, in case you want your power supply to glow red or green or something else. Everyone who likes blue should be very pleased. The Raidmax Volcanoa delivers high quality and a solid power supply for a fraction of what all bland metal boxes cost. Great product!
