Cooler Master Announces New V Series Power Supplies

Cooler Master, a leading manufacturer of desktop components and peripherals, today announced the availability of V Series power supplies, the most stable and efficient power supply unit in its class thanks to exclusive 3D circuit design and Silencio FP technology. The V series has fully modular flat cables with energy-saving 80PLUS Gold/Platinum ratings all delivered in a compact design smaller than most Power Supply Units (PSUs) in its class. The V series family is available in V550, V650, V750, V850, V1000 and V1200 watt variants perfect for gamers, enthusiasts and even system builders.

The 3D circuit design does away with unnecessary cables and uses full module boards for cross connection resulting in lower crosstalk and signal noise. This ensures a better power output which also boosts efficiency whereas other PSUs lose efficiency due to cable signal loss. The 3D circuit design also improves heat dissipation in a compact design as there is little heat generated in comparison to traditional cable based designs. Excessive ripple or noise can damage components such as capacitors and cause system degradation. This exclusive design ensures the PSU performs at its best and has minimal interference without signal loss.
