Cooler Master Releases GM Series Power Supplies

Cooler Master, a leading creator, innovator and manufacturer of desktop components and more, today released the efficient and valuable GM Series Power Supplies (PSU). Developed to improve efficiency and increase heat dissipation, GM Series PSUs are manufactured with a unique 3D circuit design. This special design minimizes unnecessary cabling which results in lower crosstalk and signal noise. Less cables means more open space to provide improved airflow to core components. A single, powerful rail platform channels the power of GM Series PSUs for superior load balancing and better compatibility with graphics cards. A custom DC-DC module further increases operational efficiency and voltage stability. A firm 80 PLUS Bronze certification is the net result of these many improvements.

For added ease of use and ability to manage cables, GM PSUs include a semi modular flat ribbon cable system. Only the most basic system cables are directly attached, leaving it up to the user to decide what will be necessary for their build. Those that enjoy easy cable management will appreciate the included flat ribbon cables that give users the ability to compress and arrange their cables in clean and compact ways not possible with traditional and individually sleeved cabling - saving time and enabling builds with the best possible airflow.

The GM Series will be available in Europe market from next week in 450W, 550W, 650W, and 750W models. Price and availability may vary based on region.

if I buy a 650W PSU and my PC needs a recommended 500W, will this still result in a higher electricity bill than with a 500W PSU?

I imagine the efficiency curve difference between a 500W power supply and a 650W power supply is less than going from, say, 80 plus bronze to 80 plus gold. If it does result in a higher electricity bill, it'd be in the cents per year, even for those who live in areas with high electricity costs.

the psu only outputs as much power as what you components need so in idle when you aren't doing anything the PSU will out put around 70W and pull 80W from the wall but when you are at 100% load then your PSU will out put 500W and pull 560W from the wall regardless of whether it's 550W or 1500W.

Yes as you get lower efficiency

But most PC´s dont even need 500 watts even really high end ones
