Cooler Master Unveils V Gold and Platinum PSU Series

Cooler Master today welcomed a new entry to its "V Series" power supplies, adding various Gold and Platinum PSUs. These new models are representing successors to the very well known V series Cooler Master has launched a few years ago. In order to live up to its name, the new models are packing improvements in every aspect possible with less noise and more efficiency.

There are several new models ranging from 650-750 Watts for Gold and 850-1300 Watts for Platinum. What makes them different from previous V series models is a range of many small improvements like better wires to deliver more power to even hungrier GPUs. The Industry standard for wire size is 18 AWG, but Cooler Master went beyond that and put 16 AWG, in order to increase current capacity. The new 100 percent Japanese capacitors allow the new models to operate silently under 40% load.
For the Platinum series, there are models in 850W, 1000W and 1300W. They use silent, double ball bearings for cooling. Here is the quick information summary for the Platinum models.
  • 80 Plus Platinum Certified
  • Full-bridge LLC Resonant Converter and DC-DC Technology
  • Thermal Regulation Mode (TRM)
  • Single/Multi-Rail Switch
  • Improved PCIe Cable Conductivity with 16AWG PCIe cables
  • 10 Year Warranty
As far as the Gold series goes, it is filled with features as well. There are improvements in cable size and many other parts:
  • 80 PLUS Gold Certified
  • Half-bridge LLC resonant converter and DC-DC Technology
  • Silent 135mm FDB fan
  • 40% Semi-Fanless mode with Hybrid Switch
  • 16AWG PCIe Cables
  • 10 Year Warranty
You can check out the new models on Cooler Master's website for more details.

That's a Delta-built PSU. One of the few PSU OEM's that may be even better than Seasonic.

Big proponent for Gold PSU, need even more manufactures to get more in the 450-550W range and pricing to move down from $65-70ish range to $45-55. But tariffs might be the reason, they seem to have gone-up from what I recall less than year ago.

Last July got a SeaSonic Focus 550W Gold for $50 today it $80 that more than 50%.

Cooler Master's site is Wonky!!

I was using their "Store" Locator and it consistently placed me Just South of Spain. My VPN is using a Server in Chicago, and I tried my zip, State, and even USA, United States and even 'of America'. Same spot South of Spain...

I guess they don't want me buying any of their stuff. (?)
