Cooler Master Launches V Series Power Supply Units

Cooler Master officially launched their new V-series power supplies today and they look to be quite impressive. The V Series power supplies feature the most stable and efficient power supply unit in its class thanks to exclusive 3D circuit design and Silencio FP technology.

The new V-series power supplies are available in three different designs, one with 550W, one with 650W, and one with 750W. The three new units come with a fully modular design that includes flat cables. The V-series comes with Gold and Platinum ratings, but these three new units are all Gold. Cooler Master managed to put all this technology into a compact form factor that will fit pretty much any chassis that can take ATX power supplies.

The Silencio FP fan technology enhances the possible airflow and reduces vibrations at the same time. In return, you get an even more stable power supply.

The V550 and V650 come with the usual 20+4-pin and 4+4-pin motherboard connectors while the V750 features an extra 4+4-pin. The two small units feature two PCIe 6+2-pin connectors and the V750 again doubles that. When it comes to SATA, Molex, and Berg connectors, it looks a bit different. The V550 features six SATA power, three MOLEX, and one Berg. The V650 and V750 have eight SATA power connections, six Molex, and 1 Berg/Floppy connector.

The three new units will be available in Europe at the beginning of October 2015 for an MSRP of £89.99, £99.99, and £109.99 respectively for the V550, V650, and V750.

Cooler Master V750 Modular Power Supply Review

Introduction


Cooler Master is one of most recognisable and well-respected names in the PC component market. Over the years, Cooler Master has created some of the best power supplies, coolers and chassis around, not forgetting their gaming division CM Storm, which has delivered some very impressive headsets, keyboards, mice and much more too! With all that in mind, I am very excited to see another Cooler Master product in the office today, their brand new V750 power supply, which promises premium performance in a tidy and compact form factor.

“V Series power supplies feature the most stable and efficient power supply unit in its class thanks to exclusive 3D circuit design and Silencio FP technology. The V Series has fully modular flat cables with energy-saving 80PLUS Gold/Platinum ratings all delivered in a compact design smaller than most Power Supply Units (PSUs) in its class. The V series family is available in V550, V650, V750, V850, V1000 and V1200 watt variants perfect for gamers, enthusiasts and even system builders.” – Cooler Master

The V750 uses a unique 3D circuit design, Cooler Master’s own Silencio FP fan technology, fully modular flat cables, 100% Japanese capacitors and much more. The overall quality is reflected in the fact that this tidy, 150 x 140 x 86, form factor still delivers 750W of power at an 80 Plus Gold efficiency

There are three models available, the 550W, 650W and the 750W. We have the 750W at our disposal today, but all models come with 100-240Vac, good active PFC, >100,000 hours MTBF and are backed up by a reassuring 5-year warranty.

The box is very similar to previous Cooler Master designs and features a nice picture of the PSU, as well as a quick run down of the major features; 750W, Japanese Capacitors, 5-year warranty, Silencio fan and 80 Plus Gold.

Around the back, a run-down of the included cables and performance, but we’ll take a closer look at those ourselves in a moment.

In the box, you’ll find a nice cable storage bag, a collection of cable ties, four mounting screws and the mains adaptor.
