    At CES 2017, Cooler Master unveiled a limited edition of their MasterWatt line of power supply units: the MasterWatt Author ME 1200 W. As the name implies, this is a 1200 W power supply, rated at 80 Plus Titanium efficiency levels (which means >94% energy efficiency), though Cooler Master claims this PSU is able to achieve >95% efficiency levels. Built exclusively with Murata components, Cooler Master are presenting this one as the best power supply they've ever made, and they're therefore pitting it as a special, limited edition PSU, of which only a few thousand samples will be produced and sold: at an over $1000 price-tag.

    Alongside this special, limited edition PSU, Cooler Master have also announced the impending availability of their MasterWatt Maker 1500 W PSU, for those discernible users who requires something short of a nuclear power core to power their PC's, which packs a 7-year warranty, revised and streamlined 3D technology, and is powered by a high-end, ARM-based digital signal processor.

    Like other products on Cooler Master's MasterWatt line of PSUs, both the Limited Edition MasterWatt Maker MIJ 1200 W and the newly announced MasterWatt Maker 1500 W will feature Bluetooth support, for connecting with your smartphone through a Cooler Master App which allows you some degree of control over the PSUs workings.

    Doesn't, Frick. Apparent cross of totally unrelated information. Will have to re-check though. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Only 7 years warranty while some already give 10 years on their top PSUs. What cheapskates.
    Not even fanless.
    Who is expected to pay $1000 for this???

    It would be good if they have invested in cables at least as much , they have invested in the power supply than made corrections in the output with capacitors which are positioned on the cables. PSU also extended by 5 cm and spoils the overall look . Could be sleeveng dun on cables . I hate mosfets in the form of a sticker, which is so happily used without cooling surfaces. and I would like to see the PSU with good old metal mosfet s .[​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    Presumably the extra $700+ is for the Bluetooth support, so you can whip out your phone and impress your friends with your geek chops. How sad...you can also do this with a $30 Bluetooth speaker.

    I know mine is, since it's OEM is Seasonic (KM3 platform, gold rated but bordering on platinum), for $200. But $1000? - has PC building become the latest hobby for super-rich dilettantes with more money than brains? First it was the $900 Phanteks Enthoo Elite, now this diamond-plated turd...what's next, an $1100 mouse with actual platinum buttons?

    Your paying for the R&D on the pcb + the nearly full computer controlling the PSU on top of that the hand built precision of the unit it self. Seems like a fair deal for what seems like a limited run or low batch product. Curious to see what Johnny guru says about it and were it will lead for future Cooler Master PSU's

    Will definitely be watching.
