At CeBIT, Cooler Master showed off two new series of power supplies, including the V series. These new PSUs, available in 700W, 850W and 1000W, use the single-rail approach are are 80 Plus Gold certified. We tested the 1000W model.
The new power supplies are based on the Seasonic KM3 platform, which also forms the basis for Corsair AX760 and AX860 (without i) power supplies. It's a single-rail design, the V Series 1000W can supply up to 83A on the 12V lines. The PSU is entirely modular and has four molex connectors, nine SATA and in total 6/8-pin PEG connectors. All cables are sleeved.
Cooler Master has equipped the power supply with a 135mm FDB fan, a silent one according to the manufacturer.
The 1000W PSU has a price of around £146 or € 170, which is reasonable for an 80Plus Gold certified 1000W PSU.
