Cooler Master V1000 reviewed - Conclusion

Review: New V series aims at high-end league

The Cooler Master V-series of PSUs consists of three models ranging from 700W to 1000W and all of them come with an 80 PLUS Gold certificate. The V1000 impressed us with good build quality and rock solid performance. Efficiency is rated at more than 90% and the PSU comes with a single fat +12V rail up to 83A, which should meet most users’ needs.

What’s more, the V-series employs Seasonic’s new KM3 platform and other components used in its design are top notch. All V-series PSUs feature a modular design with flat cables, which are pretty practical as they’re more flexible than standard cables. Although it’s a 1000W modular PSU, the V1000’s dimensions are standard and it will fit into virtually any standard chassis.

Now that graphics cards are not as loud as vacuum cleaners, users tend to notice other noise sources in their rigs. However, the V1000 proved very quiet regardless of load.

Although 1000W is not enough for ultra-high-end configurations such as a quad-SLI with Geforce Titan cards, it should be more than adequate for standard Crossfire or SLI setups. We gave it a go with three GTX 780 cards and it worked just fine.

Prices start at €167 and all things considered the V1000 is well worth it, hence we can recommend to anyone looking for a quality PSU.
