Cooler Master V Gold power supplies launched — premium features even at smaller capacities!
Cooler Master expanded their lineup of high-end power supply units (PSU) with the new Cooler Master V Gold series. The new V Gold series bridges the gap between casual and power users by using the the same high quality components through the Cooler Master V Gold range.
The Cooler Master V Gold series is available in four capacities, the V550 Gold, V650 Gold, V750 Gold and V850 Gold, all of which tout the 80 Plus Gold certification, promising 90% efficiency at typical loads. They are all also Cybernetics ETA-A Certified, which is an even more stringent efficiency test for modern power supplies, incorporating measurements for power wasted when a system is left on standby mode.
In addition to being efficient, the Cooler Master V Gold series sports 100% Japanese capacitors for maximum reliability. For those who are worried about fan noise, all the power supplies under the new lineup can run semi-fanless at under 40% load with a Manual Hybrid Switch. Even if the fan is running, the large 135mm FDB (fluid dynamic bearing) fan promises relative silent operation.
Last but not least, the power supplies are fully modular, with thicker 16AWG PCIe cables to deliver power safely and efficiently even if you go beyond the specifications of PCIe power connectors. They are priced at:
- Cooler Master V550 Gold – RM419
- Cooler Master V650 Gold – RM489
- Cooler Master V750 Gold – RM539
- Cooler Master V850 Gold – RM629
All the Cooler Master V Gold series power supplies are covered by a whopping 10 year warranty, guaranteeing you that they will outlive your build. You can get the new power supplies at local retailers or Cooler Master’s official Lazada store.
Pokdepinion: Since that the maximum efficiency of a power supply is actually at 50% load, getting a high quality PSU that’s of a smaller capacity can actually help you be more efficient if you are running a system that doesn’t draw too much power.
