There seems to be a trend lately in the power supply industry, bigger and bigger. Do we need all that power really? Or is part of it for bragging rights of who has the bigger PSU? Spire is a company known for making quite a few different accessories for computer enthusiasts, including CPU coolers and power supplies. Today I have the new RockeTeer 600Watt Gaming Power Supply for review from Spire. I have to say it looks great, and could prove to be an excellent addition to any computer system.
