Cooler Master, a leading manufacturer of desktop components and peripherals, today announced the MasterWatt V and the MasterWatt Maker with cooler Master Connect v2.0 power supply units (PSU). The MasterWatt V series adds a new line of high quality, gold rated power supplies to Cooler Master's PSU library, while the MasterWatt Maker with Cooler Master Connect v2.0 revolutionizes what digital PSUs are capable of.

MasterWatt V Series
The MasterWatt V series will be available in 550W, 650W, and 750W models and provide users with fully modular cabling. The 80 Plus Gold rated PSU comes equipped with 16AWG PCIe cables and EPS connectors that are thicker and more heat resistant for improved efficiency. Cooler Master has increased the maximum operating temperature of the MasterWatt V to a considerably higher 50°C (122°F), ensuring that systems can operate smoothly and safely in even the most extreme conditions, for an extended period of time. The 135mm FDB fan will keep the unit cool so users can push their systems to the limit. The MasterWatt V series comes with a 10-year warranty, for all models, doubling that of its predecessor series.

MasterWatt Maker with Cooler Master Connect v2.0
The MasterWatt Maker with Cooler Master Connect v2.0 80 Plus Titanium, aluminum frame PSU will be available in 1200W and 1500W models, offering users 94% efficiency for elite class performance. The next-generation 3D circuit design reduces the number of components within the PSU, increasing airflow and reducing temperatures. The original MasterWatt Maker offered users a suite of convenient control options to monitor and manage their power supply. With that in mind, Cooler Master has updated the software to offer new and improved applications that will make system monitoring and management easier and more informative.

One of the biggest improvements is the incorporation of Overlay.live. Overlay.live is a new application that was created through cooperative efforts by Cooler Master, independent app developers, and extreme overclockers, like the world renowned Wizerty, of France. This application allows users to monitor their power supply's performance in real time, digitally, and store the data in the cloud. In addition, the data can be used as an overlay during live streams. Overlay.live's low resource usage allows users to monitor their system without the software hindering performance. As part of the cooperation or this project, Wizerty will be presenting this software at various events, worldwide, throughout 2018.In Addition, Cooler Master's own MasterPlus+ integrated solution enables users to monitor several MasterWatt Maker with Cooler Master Connect v2.0 PSUs, simultaneously. This new suite of tools also allows users to monitor the performance of every Cooler Master product connected to a system in real time, without hardware. Users will also be able to access their data from the cloud, making system management and monitoring a seamless process. MasterPlus+ software is available now.

The MasterWatt V Series is expected to be available in Q2 of 2018. The MasterWatt Maker with Cooler Master Connect v2.0 is expected to be available in Q3.
