Cooler Master V Series Power Supplies Arrives in NA

By - Source: Cooler Master | B 10 comments

These power supplies are Haswell-ready, supporting C6/C7 low-power power CPU states.

Cooler Master announced on Wednesday the launch of its top performing V Series Power Supply (PSU) line in North America. These new PSUs include a premium 135 mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) fan that promises superior performance, lower noises and a longer lifespan than the typical PSU fan. It's extremely quiet, even under full load.

"Developed to be the highest quality, Cooler Master carefully sourced every aspect of the V Series PSU line to produce a high-efficiency and stable power supply," the company said. "This operational stability includes being highly efficient even at low loads – far exceeding the parameters of the breadth of operational efficiency exhibited by a typical 80 Plus Gold PSU."

The company said these higher quality components include the highest grade Japanese electrolyte and solid capacitors, a custom PCB interface, and high- quality 42 mm transformers. A single, powerful rail platform channels the full power of V Series PSUs.

Unlike many older and bargain-based PSUs on the market, Cooler Master points out that its V Series is Haswell ready, supporting fourth-generation Intel Core desktop processor C6/C7 low-power power states which require a minimum load of 0.05 amps on the 12V2 line. These processors can go from C0 (active) to C7 (Deep Power Down Mode), which helps provide maximum power savings.

The V Series will be available in 700 W, 850 W, and 1,000 W models and priced at $159.99, $189.99 and $209.99, respectively. For more information about the new V Series, head here.

    "CM" and expressions like "top performing" and "highest quality" don't belong in the same sentence. Until this is reviewed, I wouldn't trust it.

    Lets see if it reviews well and if they will stay with the original design, not change it to cheaper parts after reviews.

    Cooler Master uses Seasonic as the OEM for their new V Series.

    There is one review here of the 1000W model: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/CoolerMaster/V1000/1.html

    Seasonic? Well then, perhaps they've wised up.
    They need to stop selling all of their liar-labeled [near] junk, however, if they expect any recommendations from me. Releasing a few good products does not change the fact that telling lies should have severe consequences.

    They have swapped OEM's before and carried the line with the same name so lets see what happens now.

    Time and testing will truly tell if CM (finally) puts out quality PSUs. Not holding my breath yet.

    Very interesting. Hopefully CM has wised up to the tech forums on the internet saying how horrible their existing power supplies are.

    I wish there was a better way to clean a PSU.
