Cooler Master teamed up with Seasonic to make a strong entry into the high-end category where it faces competition using the same OEM (Seasonic). The new V series consists of three models. Today, we will test the strongest one featuring a capacity of 1 kW, a fully modular cabling design, Gold efficiency, and a single +12V rail.

Is it really necessary to have heatsinks at such high efficiency levels?

unfortunately yes. Heatsinks also help in lowering the fan speed especially at lower loads.

Nice PSU, really nice. Thanks for the review, crmaris!

I'll take a look at availability. Might get this one instead of Seasonic's 1000W Platinum for my build...a

ps: A review on Sunday?! That's new, LOL.

Thanks for the great review. Seeing only the 4th page would have been worth it alone, but the rest of it were just as good.

It's safe to say that this is the first CM PSU that I will gladly and readily recommend to people who need a ~1kW unit. The V-series is one of the very few moves CM has made over the years, regarding power supplies... I wonder if they'll turn to SuperFlower next? Thanks for the review, crmaris!

Great review :)
Almost feels like a direct successor of the silent pro hybrid series, sans the fan Controller
