Cooler Master PSU Grand Tour: V Gold V2, V Bronze, MWE Gold V2, and MWE White V2

We dedicated an article to the mighty impressive SFX Gold series that come in output models of up to 850 W. Here's the rest of Cooler Master's equally impressive new PSU lineup in conventional ATX form-factor. To begin with, the new V Gold V2 series is a refresh of the original V Gold series, and comes in a new all-white trim. Across the lineup that includes 550 W, 650 W, 750 W, and 850 W models, you get two 8-pin EPS power connectors. Cooler master also worked to reduce ripple noise output by adding in-line capacitors within connectors. Available from Q2-2020, the 550 W, 650 W, 750 W, and 850 W models are priced at $89.99, $99.99, $109.99, and $119.99, respectively.

Next up, is the company's new V Bronze line of mainstream PSUs that come in 550 W, 650 W, and 750 W models replacing the original MWE Bronze series, offer fixed cabling, but all cables barring the 24-pin ATX are flat, ribbon-type, and black. to help with airflow and aesthetics, respectively. The 80 Plus Bronze-rated PSUs are cooled by 120 mm fluid-dynamic bearing fans, and are backed by 5-year product warranties. Available from Q3-2020, the 550 W, 650 W, and 750 W models are priced at $69, $79.99, and $89.99, respectively.

hummm, here we go again with yet anutha "WHITE" claim, when in fact it is not, given the black connectors on the cables....what a sham ...:mad:....:cry:...:eek:

Perhaps the marketing folk just don't comprehend the english language well enough to understand the definition of white, or the bean counters are just too cheap to fork out the extra $.0029541 for a few more grams of the necessary pigment...

Interesting that they still spell "PCIe" incorrectly.

As for the white: Actual cost adder is around $1 if you do white housing and cables... and that still doesn't include white connectors.

Since the parts aren't "off the shelf", the initial tens of thousands of dollars for new tooling makes things cost prohibitive.

WHy would you need a White power supply in a world where PSU shrouds exist in almost every case worth it's salt.
