Cooler Master announced on Wednesday the launch of its V Semi-Modular (VSM) Series power supplies, arriving in 550W ($89.99), 650W ($99.99), and 750W ($109.99) ratings. The company suggests that the V550 model is perfect for Mini-ITX machines, the V650 for the mainstream powerhouse, and the V750 for PC gamers.
"Cooler Master builds for what you need. VSM power supplies feature a design that allows you to only connect cables that your system requires," states the PR. "Fewer cables mean less mess and better airflow inside your case. Nobody likes trying to figure out what to do with that bundle of extra cables and with a VSM power supply, you won't have to."
According to the company, these power supplies feature 100 percent Japanese high-quality capacitors, a high 80 PLUS Gold efficiency, semi-modular cables for easy maintenance, and an advanced DC-DC design. These units also have a typical efficiency of 90 percent, an MTBF of less than 100,000 hours, and a 120 mm Double Ball Bearing (DBB) fan. They're even rather small, measuring 140 mm long compared to the typical 160 mm length.
With the release of these three PSUs, Cooler Master is also introducing its Gold Guarantee.
"The Cooler Master Gold Guarantee standard means that, no matter what, we believe in our new line of 80 PLUS Gold power supplies to be the best choice for your next build," states the PR. "While we stand behind all of our products with warranty coverage, technical support, replacements, and parts services, the Gold Guarantee takes it to the next level with full support and replacement on our dime for 5 years -- giving you extreme confidence in quality and performance."

I would recommend to any PC user, not only the 550W version, but all the VSM range.
