Cooler Master has been in the PSU business for years and it made its mark on the industry. However, in keeping with the times and the competition that is always getting better, it is constantly revamping its PSU lineup. The new V-series is its latest high-end refresh.
The V-series consists of 700W, 850W and 1000W power supply units, and each boasts 80 PLUS Gold efficiency. This means that these PSUs come with over 90% efficiency under a 50% workload.
It can be quite frustrating to buy a powerful and pricey PSU only to be disappointed by a subpar fan, which are quite common even in higher end units. However, the V-series features a high-quality 135mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDR) fan that promises good performance and exceptionally low noise levels.
We had a chance to test the top V-series PSU, the fully modular RS-A00-AFBA-G1.
