Cooler Master Announces Availability of New VS Series PSU Models

Cooler Master, a leading creator, innovator and manufacturer of desktop components and more, today released the highly efficient and powerful VS Series Power Supplies (PSU). Developed to improve efficiency and increase heat dissipation, VS 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 VS Series PSUs for superior load balancing and better compatibility with graphics cards. High-grade Japanese capacitors help mitigate the affect of power fluctuations while extending overall PSU system life and creating excellent holdup times. A custom DC-DC module further increases operational efficiency and voltage stability. A firm 80 PLUS Gold certification is the net result of these many improvements.
For added ease of use and ability to manage cables, VS 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.

I am probably the only one who do not like those. They might be nice to use, but they look sort of ugly imo.

Ive used flat cables on many Corsair PSUs and they rarely work as advertised, especially around corners/90degree turns, since a flat cable can only bend in one direction effectively, they end up being a pain and impedes air more than anything.

PS. and yea, "VS"? seriously? what's up with the corsair branding here?

If it isn't a top rated gold or platinum PSU on Jonnyguru or Hardware Secrets, I would not recommend buying it. Brand name other than Seasonic who provides most of the quality PSUs to rebranding companies like Corsair, Antec, etc. typically will provide a better PSU with a longer warranty for less cost, if you buy a genuine Seasonic instead of a rebranded PSU. There are only a couple PSU makers who provide top quality PSUs so do your homework before you spend your money or you might get fleeced.

Doesn't look like those two sites have done their own official review of this product, and TPU gave it a very good rating. It also comes with a 5 year warranty, which is in line with what other higher end units have.

I thought the low load efficiencies were very impressive. In real world ROI, if you're going to shell out for a gold / platinum PSU, that matters.
