Cooler Master Launches the new V Gold Series Power Supply Units

Cooler Master, a global leader in PC component manufacturing, today, announced the availability of the new V Gold power supply unit (PSU), providing a new and improved series of PSUs for the next generation of high-end PC builders.

After five years, the V Gold succeeds Cooler Master's previously launched V Series PSU and will offer users an 80 Plus Gold efficiency rating. Available in the US and Canada in two wattage levels, 650W and 750W, the new V Gold PSU features a semi-fanless mode that enables the 135mm fan at 40% load. Users can manually de-activate the semi-fanless mode via the hybrid switch located at the rear of the PSU.
Features
  • 650W and 750W
  • 80 PLUS Gold / Cybenetics ETA-A Certification
  • Half-bridge design with DC-DC technology
  • Full-Modular Cabling with 16AWG PCI-e Cables
  • 135mm FDB fan with low RPM capabilities for quiet operation
  • Semi-Fanless Operation up to 40% load with manual Hybrid Switch for testing
  • 10 Year Warranty
The fully modular V Gold uses high quality components such as 100% Japanese capacitors and DC - DC technology to ensure reliable and stable voltage outputs of the PSU. The V Gold also comes equipped with 16 AWG PCI-e cables for better efficiency and heat resistance.

Availability:
The V Gold is currently available for purchase, in the US and Canada, at select retailers such as Memory Express and us.coolermaster.com. Starting MSRP for the V Gold 650W and 750W are $129.99 USD and $139.99 USD, respectively.

eh worthless for the price point. I have literally seen Seasonic Titanium drop to $150-160 might as well spend the extra $10-20 next sale.

Seasonic & Noctua will be at Computex, so I expect both company to have new product(s).

The Seasonics are not fully modular unless you go up to this price-point.

I wonder if these have those horrible in-cable caps.

In the trifecta of looks/cost/performance I only care about the last two, so the ability to swap cables means nothing to me. Hence I'd happily pay $10 - $20 less for a PSU with some fixed cables (you need at least the mobo 24-pin, EPS 8-pin, and a chain of SATA).

Nonsense you can get the Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550-750 watt models for around 80-$110 on most of the major websites such as newegg and Amazon and those are fully modular

They used to use a Seasonic platform for their V series, is the Enhance one so bad?

Taking of capacitors, I just bought 5x MLP383M016EB1C to mod my Seasonic PSU. I'm a little disappointed as I got the wrong ones, it' should have been the "A" version which has the tabs to mount it onto the chassis. ..Very impressive ESR.

They're on again, just not with OklahomaWolf, sadly (although if he actually do publishes a book it'l be worth the read, he's a great writer). And no, they're not. Crap doesn't come with a 10 year warranty. And the "old" V didn't have Gold in the name, so there is some slight distinction to the name.

Yeah it's not the best nor the worst oem out there, I would rather take well build enhance over fsp or sirfa. Though this one is obviously not Enhance made, it missing that signature y-shaped heatsink and green primary filtering caps. Might be Seasonic but there's no picture of full pcb layout so can't say sure.

Proof it's going to happen. ESR bottom left reading & second ESR metre is used to confirm readings. I'm also testing at the worse point for ESR reading.

Indeed... but I can't imagine it yields anything significant/tangible gains. Some live in the minutua. :)

Fair enough, I stand corrected..

For you maybe, a lot of people care about cable management. With a PSU that has fully modular cabling you only install what you need thus keeping things neat and clean.

You'd be surprised when it comes to OCing.

I wouldn't be, actually. I am (was) an LN2 overclocker pushing the limits. Doing something like that on a power supply platform that is already awesome really yields little tangible gains, even with LN2 overclocking. Now if it was a midrange unit or a potato, I would get it. ;)
